I attended a reception in Speakers House on 13 September 2023 for the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Jordan, Ahmad Mohammad Safadi, hosted the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle. The Speakers reiterated the good relations between our two countries and remarked on the cordial collaboration between our Parliaments. It was a pleasure meeting and speaking with Mr Safadi at this reception.
His Excellency Manar Dabbas – Jordan’s ambassador to the UK – was also at the reception with the delegation of a cross-party group of MPs, including Dina Al Bashir, one of Jordan’s 15 female parliamentarians.
During his meeting with Mr Speaker, His Excellency Ahmad Safadi said he hoped a change in the law would ensure that Jordanians go to the polls in November 2024. Jordan hosts many refugees, almost 20% of the population.
