complain of a significant lack of turnout from citizens as Eid al-Fitr
approaches, which has long been preceded by long days of movement of people to
prepare for it, whether in shoe and clothing stores or in sweet shops.
The poor demand for
these markets reflects the state of people's purchasing power, which is at its
lowest levels due to the living conditions they suffer from.
It is not easy for a
person to pass the month of Ramadan without preparing for the feast, which is followed
by the summer season and in which people’s needs for clothing and new
This will lead to an
increase in frustration among citizens, especially since they do not see an
effect or indication of an improvement in their financial situation, due to the
absence of prospects for an improvement in the economic situation of the state,
which is still suffering from finding solutions to the challenges it faces, in
light of the presence of officials who are not up to the responsibility.
People tried to escape
pressure in order to extract a decision from the banks to postpone the monthly
installments without fines or interest, but to no avail, although this step
causes great harm to the borrower in the long run.
Jordanians are seeking
to find any solutions that would enable them to resist their living conditions,
while the government stands idly by in front of dismantling files that affect
the lives of citizens.
This means, as we have
indicated, an unprecedented increase in frustration, which is considered the
most serious obstacle threatening the stability of society.
Whoever walks in the
streets and meets people sees the state of misery that draws threads of pain on
their faces, and you see them talking to themselves while they are in their
weakest condition. We feel their pains,
which are our pains, and we hope that God will bless the country with an
official whose only concern is alleviating the people and working to help them.
I call on the
government to mingle with people and listen to them, instead of sitting behind
desks that blind the eye and turn it into complete darkness.
Years of patience are
drawing to a close, difficulties are increasing rather than regressing, and the
country is as it is, and this is the greatest danger surrounding us.
