AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday emphasised the importance of reassuring the citizens that all reform programmes are proceeding according to a crystal-clear time-bound plan to clear up any doubts, especially those related to 

political reform.

During a meeting with a number of military retirees at the house of retired Lieutenant General Jamal Shawabkeh, His Majesty drew attention to the need of working within a strategic roadmap that entails a holistic plan of action.

Stressing that the rule of law is the basis of any development and modernisation process, the King highlighted the ongoing efforts towards improving the country in various political, economic and administrative fields.
