Flawed societal culture curbs political party action, says Ma’aita

Speaking during a meeting on Sunday with 3 political parties’ leaders, the minister urged “a strong role and real” parties’ participation in the electoral process to get elected to Parliament.
During the Covid-19 crisis, the minister highlighted the role of the Jordan’s public civil and military institutions during the the pandemic period, which have proved their capability to fulfill all tasks to preserve the citizen.
Highlighting the importance of citizen awareness over the past period, the pandemic has affected the Kingdom’s economic situation, as it did globally, according to the minister.
On their part, the parties chiefs praised the Kingdom’s “firm” position in rejection of the Israeli plan to annex the Jordan Valley and major parts of the West Bank.
Locally, they stressed the need to address the pandemic-induced impacts on the economic sector and citizens.
Urging to launch the state’s new financial contribution to political parties, they tabled several recommendations related to this support package, especially in the media-based funding, and women’s participation areas.
