AMMAN — Prime Minister-designate Omar Razzaz on Thursday said that the government will disburse the June salaries for public employees before the Eid Al Fitr holiday.

Razzaz, during a meeting with presidents of industry and commerce chambers and businesspeople association, added that the employees' salaries will be disbursed regularly and without any hindrance, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Eid Al Fitr starts with the sighting of the new moon at sunset on the preceding day, in accordance with Islamic traditions.

The eid may either start on June 15 or 16. Omar Malhas, finance minister in the caretaker government, had earlier said that the government might not be able to pay part of the salaries if the Treasury does not receive June grants from donors as scheduled.
