AMMAN — The Independent Election Commission (IEC) has sent a memorandum to the Lower House naming Ramzi Al-Ajarmeh as a candidate to replace former MP Osama Al-Ajarmeh who was fired for making “offensive remarks". اضافة اعلان

Ajarmeh is scheduled to be sworn in on Wednesday.

The Lower House on Monday morning sent an official letter to the IEC informing it of its decision to fire Ajarmeh and requesting that it names his replacement.

Under Jordan's Election Law, should a seat in the Lower House become vacant for any reason, it would be filled by the runner-up candidate from the same winning list in the polls, and should that be not possible, the seat would be filled by a candidate from the list with the second highest votes.
