AMMAN — Members of the National Initiative for Building (Zamzam) on Saturday organised a brainstorming session with ex-ministers, opinion leaders and journalists to discuss issues related to the reform process.

Attendees stressed the importance of drafting a new elections law as the basis of the envisioned reform.

Rheil Gharaibeh, former deputy overall leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and Zamzam co-founder, explained that Jordan can play a pivotal regional role in the light of its stability, which needs to be safeguarded to avert the turbulence sweeping other regional countries.

Former ministers Nabil Sharif and Musa Maaytah also stressed the need for achieving reform, indicating that dialogue should be the formula to reach a new elections law.
