CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW MEMBERS OF THE CABINATE EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE AN IMPOSSIBLE TASK AHEAD OF THEM. HOWEVER, I MUST ALSO STATE THAT AN IMPOSSIBILITY IS A LAZY MAN'S APOLOGY SO IT IS EXPECTED THAT THIS TEAM WILL
WORK HARD AND BE VERY EFFECTIVE IN MAKING ASIGNIFICANT IN-ROAD IN THE QUEST FOR ECONOMIC STABILITY AND A MORE PROSPEROUS FUTURE. THE APPOINTMENT OF MR JAMAL SARAYREH IN THIS GOVERNMENT IS A CLEAR INDICATOR THAT JORDAN IS LOOKING FOR AND HARVESTING THE MOST SEASONED AND SMART QUALIFIED CITIZENS TO HELP. MR SARAYREH IS ONE OF THE MOST SMART AND OPEN MINDED JORDANIAN THAT I HAVE EVER KNOWN IN THE ARAB WORLD. HE IS A MAN WHO LOVES HIS COUNTRY, HIS PEOPLE AND STRONGLY BELEIVE IN THE LAWS OF COMMON GOOD WHERE JORDANIANS CAN WORK TOGETHER TO DEPART FROM THE OLD WORLD ORDER TO EMBRACE THE FUTURE. LOOK AT HIS RECORD WHICH SAYS IT ALL. I WISH HIM AND HIS TEAM WELL AND PRAY FOR THEIR SUCCESS.
