(MENAFN - Jordan Times) AMMAN — The Lower House, during its last meeting of the second ordinary session on Sunday endorsed amendments to the 2009 roads law.
The legislation allows the Public Works and Housing Ministry to install road surveillance cameras and accredit their data for judicial procedures, unless proven otherwise, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
The law is based on the ministry's role in establishing and renovating roads, and implementing all works that can guarantee their sustainability and the safety of street users so as to avoid any violations.
A Royal Decree was issued on Wednesday, proroguing the Parliament's second ordinary session as of May 12.
Under Article 34 of the Constitution, the King has the power to convene, inaugurate, adjourn and prorogue the Parliament.
Also during Sunday's session, headed by Speaker Atef Tarawneh and attended by Cabinet members, MPs rejected the 2010 temporary law of the Jordan Railway Corporation for its contradiction to the 2016 Investment Fund Law and for the fact that the corporation does not even exist.
The Lower Chamber also endorsed the 2018 amendments to the law on accreditation of higher education institutions, which is aimed at preparing a national framework for qualifications under a classification that shows the level of each qualification.
The amendments are also aimed at narrowing the gap between educational institutions and employers on the concept of 'qualification', in addition to finding a reference to organise academic expertise.
