AMMAN — Newly elected deputy Abed Mahseiri was sworn in as a member of Parliament on Monday during a Lower House evening session.

Mahseiri won the Amman 2nd District seat in Saturday’s by-elections, which were organised to fill the seat left vacant by his brother Mohammad Mahseiri, who passed away shortly after the January 23 parliamentary polls.

Lower House Speaker Saad Hayel Srour congratulated the MP, noting that the Independent Elections Commission officially notified the House of the by-election result.
