Jordan: resignation of media higher council chairman
Jordan, Politics, 7/15/2002
Jordanian official sources announced on Saturday that the chairman of the higher council for the media in Jordan Kamel Abu Jabber left his post and gave no reason on the motives behind this resignation.
The Jordanian minister of information and the spokesman for the government Muhammad al-Edwan confirmed Abu Jaber's resignation, noting that this resignation is considered " valid."
Sources close to the media higher council said Abu Jaber intends to meet with 11 members of the council in order to explain reasons behind his decision. The sources indicated that his decision came as a result of "the government's slow dealing with amendments proposed by the higher council to the press law in order to make it more open."
On December 2001, the Jordanian King Abdullah decided to found the media higher council and assigned it to draw a media policy for Jordan in preparation to close the ministry of information in Jordan.
