The participants reiterated their refusal of the Aqaba Water Company’s management of the water affairs in Ma’an, pointing to the numerous complaints of the people of Aqaba about the company's performance.


Dr. Youssef Abu al-Zayt touched on the values of a meeting which was hek by Ma'an in the presence of representatives of the donors "USAID" and "GIZ"; whereby he criticized the position of the media spokesperson for the ministry during the meeting and the support he showed to the company, and denied allegations of consensus and societal agreement of the company’s presence.


Dr. Anas Abdullah Abukarki warned of the Aqaba Water Company’s taking over the water sources and funds, wondering why the company exists when the water authority can address the ministry and follow up on tenders by itself.
