Nermeen Murad on Governance

This paragraph says it all on the recent debocale between the Jordanian Parliament and the press:

Having said that, Parliament had it coming. Not only had most of its members shrunk into oblivion since being elected to their post, but when called to assume their duties more responsibly, they somehow found the energy to fight back. The depressing thing is that they chose to fight with vindictiveness, using their powers to influence the country’s laws and legislation to score points and settle their personal conflicts with writers and columnists.

Read Nermeen’s column today in the Jordan Times.
