AMMAN — The Lower House is in uproar due to the government's recent stance on two controversial issues, according to a local media outlet. The issues involve medical exemptions and the suspension of representative Abdul Rahman Al-Awaysha, who verbally attacked the Minister of Justice.اضافة اعلان

The government has taken a hardline approach on both issues, rejecting several settlements with representatives, claiming it wants to maintain the "logical and reasonable" limits of the council's institution.

Representatives are dissatisfied with the government's approach and claim to have been completely ignored when it comes to agreed-upon procedures on these two issues. They believe the hardline stance has caused discord, confusion, and frustration among them.

Awaysha's suspension for four months, as a result of his verbal attack, has further fueled tensions. He is the fourth member of the council to be punished for behavioral issues.
