AMMAN — Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Monday said the government hopes that political parties will contribute to developing political life in Jordan, of which the parliamentary elections are a key stage.

Speaking during a meeting at the Prime Ministry with secretaries general of five leftist and nationalist parties, Ensour emphasised the need for political parties to participate in all aspects of the political scene.

“Whoever has issues with the [Elections] law, the proper place to change it is under the Dome,” the premier said.

He noted that the only aspect guaranteed in the upcoming parliamentary elections, slated for January 23, is its fairness.

“We respect all political parties and we consider them a key pillar of democracy in the Kingdom.”

Ensour added that the government is committed to investigating hot public opinion issues like corruption.

For their part, the political party representatives said events in the region necessitate further tenacity internally.

They also emphasised the need to protect the low and middle classes, and find ways to make people’s lives easier.
