Prime Minister Hani al-Mulki has vowed that his government would work to facilitate the upcoming parliamentary elections, address economic woes and others facing stumbling sectors, overhaul government performance and maintain Jordan’s role in the regional and international arena. 

In his reply to the Royal Letter of Designation, published on Wednesday, al-Mulki said that his government, which took oath before King Abdullah II on the same day, that his team will work relentlessly with “no hesitation, no excuses [to delay work]”.

Responding to guidelines in the Designation Letter, al-Mulki said the government “will provide all facilitations and support to the Independent Elections Commission to ensure that all stages of the parliamentary elections are administered with the highest degrees of integrity, transparency and neutrality”.

He stressed that the government will work to issue all the by-laws and instructions required to implement the Decentralization Law, under which the elections for governorates’ council will take place next year.

Al-Mulki also said that his team will work on completing mega projects in vital sectors on the drawing board, and will accelerate preparations for the meeting of the Saudi-Jordanian Coordination Council.
