DUBAI: Bahrain recorded its largest voter turnout with 73 percent of eligible residents casting their ballots on Saturday to elect 40 representatives to the Council of Representatives and 30-member municipality councils for a four-year term.

The success of the record turnout was a ‘culmination of the democratic progress’ led by the country’s leadership, Nawaf bin Mohammed Al Mua’awda, minister for Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments and head of High Committee for Elections for 2022, said in a report from state news agency BNA.
