MANAMA - Bahrain appointed its parliament speaker to lead a national dialogue after a crackdown on democracy protests, the state news agency said, but the opposition said the crown prince should lead the reform process.

Khalifa al-Dhahrani, speaker of the Council of Representatives, said he hoped to bring "all parties concerned with matters of the state" into the dialogue.

He said the talks would "accelerate the pace of reform towards further development in various fields that will meet the expectations of all citizens," Bahrain News Agency cited him as saying on Saturday.
