Prime Minister Omar Razzaz has emphasized the importance of abiding by the rules and regulations of the next parliamentary elections across all ministries, official departments, institutions and public organisations.

“It is forbidden for any party holding a high status or position in official and public institutions to intervene or exploit their position for the interest of any candidate or list of candidates,” he said.

Moreover, Razzaz said it is prohibited for governmental employees, official and public institutions, Amman’s Mayor, members of the Municipality, or heads of the Municipal Council along with their employees, to promote any of the candidates through election campaigning.

“It is forbidden to use any of the available tools that are owned by these institutions for the election campaigns of any candidate or list of candidates,” he said.

The Prime Minister further urged absolute compliance to rules and regulations.
