Ammon News - Minister of Political and Parliamentary Affairs Wajih Azayzeh said Friday that modernization of the political system is a key feature in the next stage, and that development of political work will move to an advanced level.

"What has been achieved in the past period was within the strategic vision of the state, not an interim step, and was a higher national interest that everyone agreed on its implementation.. to proceed toward an advanced political system", he said on Jordan television's Sixty Minutes last night.

The key parameters of this vision, he pointed out, are development of partisan work in Jordan, the electoral law and constitutional amendments that complimented the 2011 amendments.

"So, there was seriousness on formation of parties, in terms of their number and political participation, and that's why they were given time to correct their status to bolster them and allow for stronger parties to form alliances.

The parameters in the political parties law, Azaizeh pointed out, were to protect the democratic process without bias, which lies at the core of political work, adding that only the ballot box will chart the political track.

The minister noted achievements made on the path to political modernization, including the passage of the parties law and partisan activities on campuses, noting that the government's policy is to keep channels open with parties and civil society institutions as a priority to ensure wider political participation.
