New Jordanian government wins vote of confidence

July 20, 2018 2:26 P.M. (Updated: July 20, 2018 10:29 P.M.)
AMMAN (Ma'an) -- The Jordanian Lower House of Parliament gave a vote of confidence to Jordanian Prime Minister Omar Razzaz's government on Thursday.

Jordan's official news agency Petra reported that the voting took place immediately after the Premier delivered his response to the deputies’ remarks, which were made over the government's policy statement.

The vote the Premier received, which was a 79-42 vote, came after five days of deliberations by the Jordanian Parliament's Lower House; six members were not present for the vote and two abstained from voting.

A total of 120 deputies presented their notes on the government's policy statement over 6 morning sessions and 1 afternoon session during the past five days.
