The Commission stressed that the brave signatories of this petition have called on the United Nations to support the initiative of holding free elections in Bahrain, and to establish a Constituent Assembly that drafts a new constitution. They underlined the importance of a political system that will emerge Bahrain from the tunnel of the current oppression and political oppression, and preserve its security, development and help stability.

It added that the petition should be based on the people’s attainment of all their political rights in a democratic environment that is not based on color, sect or ethnicity, and put an end to their bleeding, where they suffer from a lack of human rights and the monopoly of power and wealth, while the people live injustice, poverty and oppression. 

The National Commission for Popular Petition extended its thanks and gratitude to all signatories of this petition and their challenge to all repressive measures, stressing that it is in the process of completing its procedures for handing them over to the United Nations, in addition to submitting them to influential actors in the international arena.
