Osama Al-Ajarmeh: Controversy in Jordan after Parliament’s decision to dismiss the deputy


Jordanian Member of Parliament Osama Al-Ajarmeh was among the pioneers of social networking sites in the Kingdom, and the media circulated his name widely in the past few days after a parliamentary decision to dismiss him, which caused confrontations between the security and his supporters.

How did it start?

It began with a speech by MP Osama al-Ajarmeh in the Jordanian parliament, in which he accused the government of “deliberately cutting off electricity to prevent crowds of pro-Palestine tribes from entering the capital Amman during the recent confrontations between armed factions in Gaza and the Israeli army.”

The deputy’s speech developed into a verbal altercation between him and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, in which deputies saw abuse of power.

Representatives responded to what they described as Al-Ajarmas insults to Parliament with a regulation calling for its transformation into a disciplinary council, which ended up freezing its membership.
