Prime Minister-designate Omar Razzaz has vowed to start dialogue with all stakeholders to come up with a fair tax system “that goes beyond the concept of collection”.
In a Tweet on Wednesday, Razzaz said the dialogue is meant to draw up a blueprint for comprehensive development whose outcomes would positively reflect on the livelihood of Jordanians, in a way that renders the relation between citizens and the government built on a clear social contract that well defines rights and obligations”.
Razzaz was entrusted to form a government after the Cabinet of Hani Mulki resigned amid public protests against economic polices and the income tax bill.
The premier-designate was still picking his government, which His Majesty King Abdullah wanted to be “lean and efficient”.
