Former Jordanian prime minister and current Senator Tahir Al Masri said Tuesday that Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa had initially agreed to make him the league’s general commissioner for civil society.
Masri said in a statement to the Jordanian daily Al Rai that contacts are currently underway with Moussa concerning this issue. He added that the idea came under the framework of "a complete structural reform plan of the Arab League."
The Arab League general secretary announced last week the assignment of former Palestinian minister Hanan Ashrawi as the official spokesperson for the organization.
