Ammon news started a new poll asking readers to nominate a Jordanian Official whom they think is the most negligent Official in the country. The post attracted numerous comments/nominations. However, I only agree with a couple. Only two commenters mentioned the Jordanian Citizen as the cause of such corruption and negligence.
It is true. As we say in Arabic: الساكت على الحق: شيطان أخرس.
Not only that, almost all members of the Jordanian Parliament are repeatedly elected on the bases of tribal affiliation in disregard to their incompetence, inexperience, and the lack of credible performance in prior terms in the Parliament.
Jordanian citizens are the source of such corruption.
They are guilty of supporting corrupt officials with their corrupt practices, such as:
The list will go on, but I am afraid the Jordanian inferiority will go on further. Unless we work on building a strong voice for the street, the cries and complaints will never reach the ears of those we entrusted with speaking on our behalf and arguing in our favor against a government that has no opponents.
One last thing: King Abdullah, why do we still have the inefficient, unproductive, and unstable habit of forming a government every year or so. Why not borrow a page form the play book of some developed, and far superior nation, and try to give a competent minister the chance to implement his/her policies and changes without the fear of a "تعديل وزاري خلال اسابيع"!!
