The electronic newspaper, “Akhbar Al-Jordan”, learned from an informed source, that the Cabinet decided to transfer 4 Mercedes 2021 model cars to a minister and 3 high-ranking employees in the “Presidency.”

The exchange of these cars comes in light of the difficult economic conditions that the Kingdom is going through, which require the government to rationalize expenditures and spend the money in the right place, not that “tightening of belts” is just a populist slogan.

Spending these cars contradicts government calls to control expenditures, and citizens will view them as a kind of government extravagance and extravagance in light of the growing budget deficit and the government resorting every time to the citizen’s pocket to cover it.

It is noteworthy that the regulations and instructions in force provide for the allocation of only one car for each minister or employee of the highest category, and that the previous exceptional approvals of any public employee are considered null and void.

The regulations limit the use of government cars to official business only, dispensing with vehicles with large engine capacities, whether by writing off or selling, and redistributing the remaining redundant vehicles to the departments and institutions that need them.
