(MENAFN) Bahraini government is planning to build thousands of residential units for nationals over the next five years, Gulf Daily News reported.

The paper cited Housing Minister Bassem Al Hamer as saying that the government plans to build and deliver more than 30,000 homes to Bahraini nationals.

He also said that a total of 51,000 applicants were still on waiting lists and that the ministry was going to solve the problem once and for all.

Al Hamer told the parliament that the number of applicants clustered since 1999 due to budget problems and 55 percent of the applications were submitted less than five years ago, while 45 percent are old.
