AMMAN — Attending a Senate session on Tuesday, Prime Minister Bisher Al Khasawneh said that developing political life in Jordan necessitates separating oversight and security authorities from partisan work, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

Khasawneh noted that this would allow these authorities to work impartially and protect democracy. 

Oversight related to financial affairs, human rights, or the judiciary should be free from any partisan practice, he stressed. 

Nonetheless, there are amended regulations which encourage partisan work in universities and motivate young people to engage in political parties, Khasawneh noted.
