The Jordanian University Alumni Club held a dialogue meeting with Senator Mohammed Daoudiyeh entitled "Parties and Elections in Jordan".
Daoudiyeh spoke about the importance of intensifying such dialogue meetings, which contribute to raising the level of party culture among members of the local community.
He said that there is a serious attempt to get rid of the legacy of destructive parties, adding that the attempt will not be easy or quick. He also stressed that party pluralism is important for the strength of societies if it is used correctly, pointing out that parties are institutions of construction, criticism, and reform aimed at governments.
He affirmed that the Jordanian political thought is a national one, and that parties are one of the important necessities in the lives and progress of peoples. He also pointed out that the Jordanian model is considered to be the most democratic, and that new forces are produced by parties.
Daoudiyeh added that the new election law distinguished and empowered women and youth, and came in response to the political situation emerging from the political modernization process, in order to reach a parliamentary council that meets the aspirations of Jordanians.
