The constitution ought to specifically state that every nation is left entirely independent and supreme in its internal affairs, such as regulating emigration and all other similar matters.
– George William Norris
We are a constitutional monarchy. I don’t order laws, I propose them. Article 35 of our constitution states that the king can only refuse a law of parliament once, then he has to sign it – if the same law is then supported by a two-thirds majority in both houses of parliament.
– Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
