MANAMA: Bahrain’s major company overall body has lifted sturdy objections to a proposed regulation that will allow Bahrainis in federal government careers to operate businesses.

In a statement yesterday, the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Business voiced reservation over a proposal tabled for discussion in the upcoming session of Parliament tomorrow which would permit public servants to receive professional registrations (CRs).

The chamber claimed the proposal which has previously been accepted by the legislative and legal affairs committee of the Council of Reps, involves introducing a new report (21 bis) to the civil company legislation issued by decree regulation (48) for the year 2010, accordingly allowing federal government officers to engage in business enterprise.

The BCCI has questioned the constitutionality of the proposed law, stressing that it impacts civil services and is in contradiction with the labour law in the non-public sector.

It agreed with the belief of the Market, Commerce, and Tourism Ministry, opposing the legislation and underlining the importance of ‘devotion and specialisation’ as vital principals for successful small business.

The chamber explained that the proposed regulation will develop a conflict of curiosity, have an affect on self-discipline and the quality of function in the public sector, exacerbate present issues such as professional concealment, increase unfair level of competition, and limit task options for unemployed citizens.

The GDN reported previous Friday that the parliament is established to debate amendments to the 2010 civil services law to let Bahrainis in federal government jobs to open CRs inspite of objections from the federal government that it contradicts the character of civil provider.
