She would replace dismissed MP Muhammad Enad Al-Fayez for the Central Bedouin district, a local media outlet reported.

On Wednesday, the Lower House voted by a majority of 92 votes out of 110 during a closed session to dismiss representative Fayez for violating House bylaws.

The Lower House had addressed the Independent Election Commission about a seat vacancy in the Central Bedouin district on Thursday, said Khalayleh. The commission responded that the candidate who follows the holder of the vacant seat from the same Al-Ahed list in the district is Khudair, who received 2,912 votes in the legislative elections.

Khalayleh said that Fayez was not a member of any Lower House permanent committees, but he was the head of the Jordanian Parliamentary Friendship Committee with the Gulf countries and Yemen.

The process of selecting a new chairman for the committee will take place with the agreement of other parliamentary blocs, said Khalayleh.
