Now on here
Of course - they aren't scheduled to get round to "New Nominations" until Friday afternoon - after having had Friday morning "off" (for prayers??)
Some interesting issues before then on State of Conservation etc etc,
The Bahrainis have found another member of their extended Royal Family to chair it!
Last time Bahrain "held" the WHC in 2011 the Chairperson was HE Shaikha Mai Bint Mohammed Al-Khalifa President of Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities. However, because of internal disorder in Bahrain during the Arab Spring the meeting had been moved from Bahrain to Paris. Whether for that reason or otherwise we saw little of her after the opening formalitieshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mai_bint_Mohammed_Al_Khalifa
This time the Chairperson is HE Shaikha Haya Rashed al-Khalifa. Once Bahrain's first female Ambassador (to Paris) and trained/practicing as a Lawyer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haya_Rashed_Al-Khalifa
