MPs also criticized Western countries' decision to stop funding UNRWA, and thanked South Africa for its position in the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Al-Ghad reported.

The session was headed by Speaker of the House Ahmad Al-Safadi, partially managed by MP Abdul Rahim Maayah, and attended by Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh and several members of the government team. For the third day in a row, MPs debated the draft general budget law for fiscal year 2024, and they will continue to do so again in a session on Tuesday.

The cash level for the state's general budget in fiscal year 2024 has increased, and MPs have questioned the Social Security Corporation's (SSC) growing borrowing with no clear return deadline. MPs demanded not to touch the student support fund and to adopt the previous form without any modification, to raise the salaries of employees, military personnel, and retirees, to enact a law of general amnesty to alleviate the citizens' burden, and to refuse any tampering with the northern and eastern borders, expressing their support for the Jordanian Armed Forces - Arab Army (JAF) and border guards in their role in keeping the borders safe and stable.
