Jordan week

Possible legal action against Amman governor: A new political crisis is developing between Ammanís governor Talíat Al Nawayseh and opposition parties in Jordan.

* Possible legal action against Amman governor: A new political crisis is developing between Ammanís governor Talíat Al Nawayseh and opposition parties in Jordan. Soon after the Legal Committee for the parties rejected the idea of filing a lawsuit against Al Nawayseh because of his ban on demonstrations and public rallies in Amman, the co-ordinating committee for the political parties are preparing for a number of demonstrations this year in defiance of the decision. The parties are also urging its Legal Committee to take legal action against Al Nawayseh.

* Municipalities get helping hand to pay debts: The participation of Jordanians in political life is a must, said Abdel Rahim Al Akour, minister of municipal, rural affairs and environment. He spoke out against those who object to such participation. Al Akour said he decided independently to become part of the current government to serve Jordan and its people. The minister noted his ministry is working on a new 12-year rehabilitation program to integrate small and medium municipalities in the Kingdom. One of the main objectives is to help indebted municipalities. According to Al Akour, almost all of Jordanís municipalities suffer heavy debts worth JD 70 million.

* Prepare yourself for water rationing : The government launched this month a new water rationing program for this year. Sources at the Water Ministry said the water rationing program will run for the coming few years. They noted the government is waiting for the Al Disi project in the south and the Al Wehda Dam bordering with Syria to be completed within the coming two to three years. This will provide the Kingdom with sufficient amounts of water. The Ministry has prevented farmers in the Jordan Valley and other areas from planting summer crops, such as tomatoes and corn because they consume too much water. The ministry is working on improving the water network in Amman at a cost of $225 million.

* Boran first woman ambassador : Alia Hatouq Boran was recently appointed Jordanís Ambassador to Belgium, the first woman ever to hold such a high profile post. The 45-year-old is well-known for supporting environmental causes. A former academic at the University of Jordan, Boran holds a PhD in Environmental Science, and is the author of 26 scientific publications on sustainable development. Before her appointment, she was the secretary-general at the Ministry of Tourism. The mother of two presided over the environmental file during Jordanís negotiations with the US over the Free Trade Agreement last year. Lourice Hallas was the first female appointed in 1969 as assistant to the Jordanian Ambassador at the UN.
