Oman – Compass

The scene of the formation of new parties with names affiliated with the state raised more uncertainty and mistrust towards the political reform that the state adopted during the bicentennial as a first step on the way to reaching parliamentary and party governments. Rather, the confidence gap in the state has deepened, given that everything that is happening today is nothing but a theatrical and décor intended only to appease the outside and attract more aid, according to Jordanian political elites.

The elites believe that the speed with which the new parties were formed and the names they lead, the obstacles to them were overcome, and the media promotion of them indicates beyond any doubt that the “partisan conviction” of the state is lacking. The demonization of traditional parties continues and the recycling of personalities and names that enjoy the support of the deep state to lead a stage Party governments” proves that the state is pursuing the same approach that does not believe in reform or the right of people to choose successive governments.

The elites also expressed their rejection of the accusation of the traditional parties of wanting to monopolize the Jordanian political scene and accusing them of failing to provide something during the previous stage despite the lack of climate and lack of will and preventing these parties from participating in any real elections that would allow them to participate in and form governments, emphasizing at the same time that The right to form new parties and give them the opportunity, but provided that there is a real political climate for competition between all parties and a serious and fair election law that allows Jordanians to express their free and fair will in choosing governments through the ballot boxes that will be the decisive factor.

Formal decorative parties without decision-making powers

Political analyst Dr. Munther Al-Hawarat confirmed in statements to “Al-Bawsala” that everything that is being raised about the law and parties and what the Political System Reform Committee produced in this regard arose within a political formula that does not want the parties to be anything but a form, stressing that “the evidence for this is that The system of constitutional amendments that were accompanied by the parties and elections laws will deprive any party in the future of any ability to exercise real executive powers.”

The dialogues said: We found the establishment of a cross-institutional institution, and therefore the role of any party will be dependent on very narrow issues and will not have the ability to enter into big and important decisions, and this weakens people’s confidence in the possibility of these parties taking power.

He stressed that “the state and its organs are now involved in establishing parties at hand, as it is said, even if they reach levels in the House of Representatives that are subject to the will and will of the state.”

He criticized the dialogues for what he called “a process of rotation of former people and does not contain anything new,” stressing at the same time that we note that “the personalities that are circulating in these parties are the ones who clearly practiced work in the state, and did not succeed, so it is not a shame to be part of the system.” The state, but the problem is that you did not practice your work at that stage in a way that satisfies people and makes you gain their trust.”

He added, “Therefore, we note the magnitude of the negative reaction against the newly formed parties and against their founders,” noting that “even from the people involved in the process of calling for parties, we notice that they began with a violent criticism of these parties and the people who establish them, as if this belief is formal and temporary.”

He stressed that the partisan conviction in the country is never authentic, and it did not result from a desire, at a time when democracy does not come from the desire of anyone, but it is the result of societal understandings on a formula and form for managing the state, and this did not happen in reality.

He continued by saying: “The matter came from above, and the government decided to bring in a group of personalities to set laws and their purpose was not local, but to convince the world that we are entering a stage of political reform.”

Regarding the accusations against the traditional parties and that they want to monopolize the scene, the dialogues affirmed that the new parties have the right to take their chance, but to hear from their founders a discourse as if the world was born with them and that they are magic lamps to save the country, this is only a superficial reading of the scene.

He expressed his rejection of the accusation of the traditional parties that they did not provide anything, stressing that this accusation is unfair because these parties, despite their shortcomings sometimes, were not given a real opportunity, and their hands and feet were amputated, and they were not allowed to truly increase their supporters and followers, in addition to the lack of any political climate. Real success of the partisan experiment.

He stressed that it is not permissible to accuse traditional parties as long as they are not allowed to participate in power and governments within a real and just democratic law.

Al-Hawarat said that “what the founders of the new parties adhere to, Jordanians will experience with the first elections if they are held within an atmosphere of freedom and integrity according to a law that allows parties to truly compete to form party and parliamentary governments.”

The political expert expressed his lack of optimism about the political and partisan scene today, saying: I am not optimistic, as the new parties that are forming today and whose personalities are part of the state and its institutions, they want today to return to lead the scene again, but in a formula that appears as if they came with the will of the people that we know very well how it is made, the mechanisms and what it is her real.

semi-formal parties

For his part, the Secretary-General of the Partnership and Salvation Party, Salem Al-Falahat, describes the formation of new parties quickly as “nothing more than a democratic decor that mocks people’s minds,” stressing that “it only deceives the ignorant and is only promoted by beneficiaries or those whose message was in life only (let us live). It is belied by the legislation and even the new amendments that made the situation worse when reading the totality of the amendments, laws and the so-called updates and previous and current practices with everyone and among its requirements is the entry of formal, decorative and limited parties, but of course under official control and visible and hidden hands.

The peasant women emphasized that the formation of semi-official parties, and that they were blown up, that the way was facilitated for them, that their eyes turned a blind eye, and that they would be supported by dirhams and dollars, in which ambitions between personal and official overlap, and some of those involved may delude them that they are preserving their previous gains unjustly, or in order to lure them to new gains that will happen, as others thought in 1997 and what Turn it around in the name of party action.

And he continued by saying: Or standing (democratic in accordance with the constitution and the law) in front of the possibility of the success of any democratic experiment in which the people alone are the source of powers according to the current constitution. Read about the history of the formation of political parties in Jordan, and there are many university theses and books in this regard.

He stressed that one of the goals of the large number of official noise from writers and promoters of rapid intervention who beautify the ugly and distort the beauty of democracy and parties is to export abroad and to attract non-refundable aid and try to make the illusion that we correct and reform always, adding: This is on the one hand and on the other hand, pulling the rug out from under serious projects and keeping The state of political tyranny, corruption of all kinds, and individual rule, if we look closely at what is happening in the region of Zionist expansion, normalization, the Abrahamic religion, the Arab situation, and an attack in many forms against Islam, which was uniting the nation, and the Arabs gathered nothing but it.

suspicious formation

In turn, the journalist Hussam Gharaibeh confirmed that there is no doubt that the formation of new parties by the names of Jordanians who have previously occupied leadership or political positions or are currently occupying them raises suspicion and doubt in the hearts of many in terms of the feeling that the deep state (as it was called in some countries) seeks to build Political formations to compete with the traditional opposition in Jordan.

Gharaibeh said in a post on “Facebook”: Everyone has the right to think of establishing parties, but before going into the names of the founders, we ask what is the intellectual link and the political project that brought these names together??? Usually, a group presents an intellectual program to invite others to join them in establishing the party, and not the other way around.

He added, “In any case, personally, I find that these formations are a healthy and positive phenomenon, not a negative one. They are part of our political and partisan exercises, and they will be examined and their ability to make a difference in elections first, and in practice second.”

He concluded by emphasizing that “society will remain the decisive factor in choosing the party that it expresses. The more effective participation is and based on party programs, this will motivate the parties to remain programmatic and work hard and employ the experiences of their members and their previous experiences to benefit from them in convincing people of their program.”

New parties are formed

The Secretary-General of the Ministry of Political and Parliamentary Affairs, Ali Al-Khawaldeh, revealed the ministry’s progress towards granting licenses to establish new parties, soon.

Al-Khawaldeh said that 18 requests to establish a new party had been received by the ministry, and “all of them are under consideration.”

He suggested granting licenses to establish new parties during the next week, indicating that there are legal terms governing the ministry with regard to considering requests to establish parties.
