    Congratulations to all Bahrain Pangalites for electing a new committee under the leadership of Nelson Alva. I am sure Nelson and his team will work hard for the betterment of all Pangalites in Bahrain and support all needy projects back home. I wish Nelson and the new committee members all the best.
