Start of national dialogue


Jordan has established a 53 member National Dialogue Committee charged with the job of drafting democratic reforms within three months.

The committee has been asked to come up with a new election law and political system that will lead to a representative parliament with the powers to appoint a prime minister.

The committee consists of opposition leaders, academics and representatives of minority communities including the Christian community.
