Today's question is:

New Minister of Justice Dr Mohammed Al Sitri took the ministerial oath yesterday to bla bla bla.

What does this (the oath) signify?

Will he keep his words?

Will this mean there will be a drastic shake-up in the Ministry of Injustice?

Will this mean that people like Ahmed, who have been rotting in prison for months, be given access to a fair trial?

Will the former Minister of Municipalities and Agriculture be able to use the skills he has accumulated in charge of muncipalities to "clean up" the rat-infested ministry he has now inherited?

Will he be able to use his green fingers to cultivate and nurture some trust in the judiciary which has proved again and again that it is not with righteousness and justice but with power, influence and besmearing Bahrain's reputation over and over again?
