Reform will lead to elected parliamentary gov’ts – King

AMMAN (Jordan Times) – His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday stressed that the reform process is progressing as scheduled in line with a roadmap and a well defined agenda, according to a Royal Court statement.

During a meeting yesterday with a group of young Jordanians from various sectors, the Monarch said: “We are moving ahead with the reform process. There is nothing to fear as we believe that reform is the key to a better future for all Jordanians.”

The King said that the enactment of the municipalities and teachers association draft laws is an “advanced step in the reform process”, noting that constitutional amendments proposed by a Royal committee will be referred to the government next week, to be endorsed consequently through the proper constitutional channels.

The Lower House is expected to meet for another extraordinary session next month dedicated to debating the changes, which constitute another basic ingredient of political reform. read more
