Manama-May3(BNA)Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ali Al-Khalifa today hailed the constitutional amendments endorsed by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa.

In a statement to Bahrain News Agency (BNA), he described the new-look constitution as representing a quantum leap which will anchor reforms and bolster Bahrain's fledgling democracy.

He described the tactic of boycott as being fruitless, adding that reform needs a great deal of determination, participation and openness.

"Sincere participation is the true path to ensure achievements for the country", he said.

The minister described the constitutional amendments as the fruit of the National Consensus Dialogue, paying tribute to all participants for their openness on all parties and keenness to promote consensus.
