Published November 2nd, 2009 - 11:04 GMT

Amman Municipal Council approved, during a normal session today, to name some main streets in Amman after martyrs' (names) of the Armed Forces who paid their lives while on duty in Haiti, in addition to a martyr of the special operations force during a training mission.

Mayor of Amman, Eng. Omar Maani has asked the Council members for reciting Al Fateha (The Opening Verse of the Quran) during a minute of silence in respect to the memory of those martyrs, and he requested the authorization to name some main streets after the martyrs' (names).

With regard to the Centennial Parade which took place last Friday (9/10/09), the Mayor said that it had represented the joy of Amman residents and Jordanians' pride with their capital; it also reflected the beautiful social fabric and the national unity in a picturesque performance. 

Al Maani declared that there will be a new celebration next month to honor the municipalities' mayors and Greater Amman mayors to express gratitude for their great efforts for the past 100 years.

Addressing the Council on behalf of 20 Council members, Yahya Al Soud extended his thanks and appreciation to the Mayor and the Parade organizers for their devotion and hard work. On the other hand, member Ali Badr Al Hadid cited his reservations and criticism towards the Parade which, he believed, was lacking some important facts.

Some members of the Human Resources committee submitted their resignations. Following this dramatic development, the Council approved the mayor's motion (naming of the streets). 

The Council also approved a proposal to prepare and install signs, boards, frames and numbers to finish the city organization project and complete the stages of tender.

The Council approved the GAM Haj delegation of the current year, comprising 130 employees.

They discussed and approved some service tenders and projects which included modification orders for the tunnels of Qweismeh and Funon.
