Bahrain's ruler proclaimed himself king and his tiny Persian Gulf island state a constitutional monarchy yesterday, calling for legislative and local elections in line with a promise to make Bahrain a democracy.
Sheik Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa said he was "fulfilling his promise" to bring democracy to Bahrain and immediately called a national election for a legislative body in October and a municipal election in May. AP
