MANAMA - The government will lift a ban on Bahrain's second largest opposition party, the group said on Saturday, ahead of a national dialogue to ease the Gulf island kingdom's political crisis.

Authorities shut down Waad, a leftist party aligned with the largest Shi'ite opposition group Wefaq, in April amid a crackdown by security forces on pro-democracy protests.

Waad spokesman Radhi al-Mousawi said the government would lift the ban on its headquarters in Manama on Saturday and later on its office Muharraq.

The state news agency BNA quoted the Justice Ministry as saying steps were being taken to lift the ban.
