A number of members of the House of Representatives have signed a new memo of no confidence in the government, as the government didn't drop the Jordan-Israel gas agreement.

During today's parliament session, a number of MPs signed the memo and left the session, a source has said.

Speaker of the House of Representatives and Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union, Atef Tarawneh confirmed that the previous "no-confidence in the government" memo was posted on social media platforms and did not reach the General Secretariat of the House of Representatives to include it in the agenda of the sessions.

However, the parliament's Reform Bloc says that the previous memorandum was submitted to the General Secretariat three months ago and did not take its constitutional course in accordance with the internal system of the parliament.

MPs who left the session are members of the parliament's Reform Bloc, namely Mohammad Hdaib, Mohammad Tarawneh, Mahmoud al-Farahid, Saddah al-Habashneh, Abdullah al-Qaramseh, Hazem al-Majali, Safa'a al-Momani, Jamal Qamu, Nawwaf al-Naimat, and Khalil Attiyah.
