How to Become a Minister In Jordan

BySa'eda Kilani

This book, which analyses ministers CVs and the use of wasta and connections in senior positions during last decade (2006-2016), reveals that a quarter of the 301 ministers were appointed to ministries that do not match their qualifications and/ or educational background. Only 22 women ministers were appointed in Jordan among the 301 ministers, making a meager 7% rate. Despite the low number, women ministers in Jordan have been subjected to unmerited and scathing campaigns targeting their capabilities, qualifications, self-confidence and credibility. The book looks into blatant appointments of relatives, friends, colleagues, acquaintances and immediate family members to senior positions within the kingdom. It is with hope that this attempt will prompt serious action into eliminating posts by birth and setting new clear-cut rules and legislation for high-level appointments based purely on merit- not wasta and nepotism.
