Financial By-Laws Report

Report on Workshops on Financial By-Laws


Under the patronage of the Ministry of Political and Parliamentary Affairs (MoPPA), “EU Support to Jordanian Democratic Institutions & Development (EUJDID)” project organised three workshops took place on 11, 16, and 30October at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Amman, Jordan.


The workshops brought together representatives of Jordanian political parties, MoPPA staff members, and distinguished local and regional academics and political experts to engage in open dialogue on state subsidies to political parties.


The workshops provided political parties with the opportunity to share their views regarding the current By-Law regulating state subsidies to political parties (No.53 and its modification No. 111) and propose modifications in that regard.  


The final conclusions, some of which were consolidated in a report, will be used by MoPPA in its potential amendment of the aforementioned By-law. The new By-law would ensure that the conditions and fields of expenditure of subsidies would untimely empower parties and enhance their performance. This objective is in line with the rationale of the EUJDID project, which aims at supporting Jordanian efforts in the consolidation of democratic practices and supporting the political party system.


EU-JDID project is funded by the EU and encompasses three components: Parliamentary Support, Electoral Assistance, and Support to the Political Party System. It is implemented by a consortium led by the European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES), and composed of: the European Partnership for Democracy (EPD), Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD), the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD), and the French Agency for Media Cooperation (CFI).
