According to Khaberni, Zayadin said that in order to gain a full approval by the Council of Churches, it must be approved first the Bureau of Opinion and Legislation, then the government, and then be referred to the Lower House and Senate, and get a final endorsement by His Majesty King Abdullah.

Zayadin added everyone should continue to pressure the government to expedite the draft law and present it to the Lower House until it is fully approved.

Christian law, he added, supports equality between women and men in inheritance matters.
