AMMAN — The Jordan Social Democratic Party on Friday held its first general conference, and elected a new central council of 57 members and endorsed amendments to its by-law.

The conference included issuing a political report highlighting the party’s success in achieving unity and harmony, according to a party statement.

The report reiterated the centrality of the Palestinian issue and condemned the US decision recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, praising the Kingdom’s efforts in bringing back the Palestinian issue to the top of regional matters.

The report said that successive governments reproduce the same “helpless” policies, noting that raising prices and sales tax cannot help financial crises, but on the contrary reduce citizens’ purchasing power.
