The lower house Speaker Ahmed Al-Safadi said that the Jordan constitution established the status of the parliament as a main umbrella for the overall performance of the Jordanian state and all its institutions, and the legislative authority has always been the mirror of popular representation through the most sincere forms and through popular participation in voting and thus participation in decision-making.
