The House , he said, has today completed the first phase of Jordan's political modernization path by endorsing 30 constitutional amendments and will soon begin to debate and endorse elections and parties draft laws that will be a "milestone in Jordan's modern history."

On the local arena, Dughmi called on Jordanians to support the Kingdom's political modernization path and push its success to achieve the country's progress and prosperity under the King's leadership.
