The crisis of the Jordanian left with the arms of power

A shift in thinking and direction, and a coup against democracy and political reform: the crisis of the Jordanian left with the arms of power  “What, Pasha, is a democrat.” This may be just a phrase that does not mean anything and is always repeated among Jordanians in small or big issues and exclusively when addressing retired or serving generals. But it means more politically, at least, when he addresses it in a denouncing rather than questioning context. One of the most prominent symbols of the Jordanian left among members of the Senate is a colleague in the same council who is retired from the military institution, and after a discussion during the clash with the legislative process of texts related to political reform. This phrase was spotted as a paradox that re-establishes a vague and sometimes incomprehensible situation, not at the level of the Senate as an institution, as it is clear and direct and performs its duties. But at the level of those elites, for whom seats are provided in the name of leftists and Jordanian democrats, within the framework of a process that has been going on for years, entitled a shift in thinking and direction, rather a coup against democracy and political reform for intellectuals with leftist colors who are sometimes polarized or lured into the bosom of power. Once again, such a stray phrase sheds light on one of the paradoxes of the elite local political scene.   Democrats, supporters of the civil current, leftists and, to a lesser extent, some Islamists appear in revolutionary paradoxes against what they were proclaiming on the street sometimes without a clear or explainable reason. Of course, this happens when luring and then enjoying the advantages of the seat, the job, and the privileges that the bosom of power provides to the polarized under the headings of political coloring. For example, a tangible majority of representatives of the civil movement and symbols of the left was clearly noticed when forming the royal committee to modernize the political system, and one of the sources directly informed Al-Quds Al-Arabi observers that the composition of the aforementioned committee intended to include everyone who opposed the cruelty of the regime or even a wide range of insults in some identities. Despite that, the document to modernize the political system came out with a very moderate description in the context of political reform. Union activist Ahmed Abu Ghanima noticed early on that the leftist color and the advocates of the civil movement were accumulating heavily in the bosom of the authority. But this accumulation was supposed to lead, instead of having a quota or a quota in the name of the fiercest leftists or advocates of civilizing the state, to a real coloring in favor of democracy and political reform.

“What, Pasha, is a democrat.” This may be just a phrase that does not mean anything and is always repeated among Jordanians in small or big issues and exclusively when addressing retired or serving generals.
But it means more politically, at least, when he addresses it in a denouncing rather than questioning context. One of the most prominent symbols of the Jordanian left among members of the Senate is a colleague in the same council who is retired from the military institution, and after a discussion during the clash with the legislative process of texts related to political reform.

This phrase was spotted as a paradox that re-establishes a vague and sometimes incomprehensible situation, not at the level of the Senate as an institution, as it is clear and direct and performs its duties. But at the level of those elites, for whom seats are provided in the name of leftists and Jordanian democrats, within the framework of a process that has been going on for years, entitled a shift in thinking and direction, rather a coup against democracy and political reform for intellectuals with leftist colors who are sometimes polarized or lured into the bosom of power.
