PM discusses elections law with centrist parties
He pledged that the government will take all the legal measures to guarantee the integrity of the coming elections.
During a meeting with secretaries general of centrists parties, attended by several ministers, Khasawneh said any new parliamentary electoral system will not be based on the one-person, one-vote formula, adding that the "virtual districts" are also no longer acceptable to the public.
In a statement to Petra, Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications and Government Spokesperson Rakan Majali said Monday's meeting is part of a series of meetings Khasawneh will hold to discuss the elections law.
Khasawneh will also meet with leaders of leftist and nationalist parties on Thursday, according to Majali.
