MPs approve proposal to halve utility bills for expats

A proposal to almost halve the utility bills for expatriates in Bahrain was unanimously approved by MPs today. The National Action Charter Bloc led by its chairman Mohammed Al Sissi, who is also Parliament foreign affairs, defence and national security committee chairman, is behind the move which has been spurred by concerns about the real estate market. 


A series of rate increases for expats since 2016 has seen the cost of electricity increase to 29% fils per unit, while the water rates are 750 fils per unit.
