AMMONNEWS - Islamic Action Front (IAF), the political wing of Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan, called on Tuesday for the Jordanian government to stop “security interference” in the political life, Anadolu news agency reported.

This call came in a message sent by Mohamed al-Zyoud, the secretary-general of the Islamic Action Front to the Jordanian Prime Minister Hani al-Mulki.

In his message, Al-Zyoud said that the Jordanian security services is carrying out a security campaign against the members of the IAF across the country.

Al-Zyoud also noted that the security services delay travel procedures for the IAF leaders and senior members, according to Anadolu.

These measures, Al-Zyoud said, “reiterates the government’s exclusion policies which is targeting our party and its members.”

He noted that such policies, which opposes the government’s pledges, undermine the development of the political life in the country and the partisan activities.

In addition, he said: “Such policies do not contribute to creating political life based on plurality… They push citizens to keep away from the organised political work and increase their suffering in the light of the economic and social crises in the country. This would lead to chaos.”

Concluding his message, Al-Zyoud called for the government to stop the “systematic exclusion” policies regarding its dealing with the Jordanian citizens and to rein in the direct security interference in the political and civilian life.

He reminded the prime minister that not only the IAF members and leaders who face security harassment, but also their relatives.
