; transliterated: Jam'īyat al-Wifāq al-Watanī al-Islāmīyah), or Al Wefaq for short is a Bahraini political society, and the largest party in the Bahrain, both in terms of its membership and its results at the polls. Although it is by far the single largest party, with 18 representatives, in the 40-member Bahraini parliament, it has often been outvoted by coalition blocs of opposition Sunni parties and independent MPs reflecting gerrymandering of electoral districts. On 27 February 2011, the 18 Al Wefaq members of parliament submitted letters of resignation to protest regime violence against pro-reform Bahraini protestors. - Source: Wikipedia
