6. Security democracy and prosperity all work together and reinforce each other as a foundation for our future.
5. It's our collective duty now to embrace democratic values and practices and continue developing them in the years ahead

Our success depends on :
1- the success of actors in our political system in embracing their roles and responsibilities
2- enrooting democratic values and practices
3- enhancing existing conventions and creating essential new ones
4- do the necessary levels of political maturity needed to achieve every milestone successfully
7. That we will get the confidence and encouragement to pursue further reforms and achieve the next set of milestones in our journey

8. His majesty stressed on the challenges we as Jordanians face during a period of change by preserving the delicate balance between branches of government, so that they continue to work effectively and remain independent from each other at the same time.
7. Our constitution and laws facilitate this balance, but democracies around the world and throughout history have shown that it is simply impossible for any law or constitution to anticipate and prepare for every possible situation.

6. Part of the answer to striking this delicate balance between cooperation and separation is in our political actors and the ability to make the best decisions in situations that are not clearly covered by stated rules and regulations. This is known as Conventions: a set of habits and practices that govern political actors conduct.


Government, Parliament and the civil service must therefore develop further conventions that already exist and build new ones as new changes and challenges arise. Areas in which enhancing existing conventions and building new ones are needed to ensure effective collaboration and coordination between our political actors.
1- the consultative mechanism for designating prime ministers, as our practices of parliamentary democracy continue to evolve.
2- the mechanism for formulating the PM-designate and his cabinets four year policy plan as part of the basis to receive the house of representatives vote of confidence.

8. His majesty emphasized on the fact of conventions as they play an important role in every system of government around the world, especially in parliamentary systems, as he mentioned in some paper I forgot what it was to be honest, anyways although conventions represent habits and practices that are not written down and may not have the force of law they are vital for practical functioning of our political system, he expects to identify the key tasks and responsibilities awaiting the government.
9. Over the last five years, our civil society organizations have doubled in number reaching over 6 thousand active organizations.
8. The citizens of Jordan wants the country to become more developed.
7. His majesty wants the country to be flourished and developed.
