Oh Great! Bush in Jordan!... I wonder why he's visiting Jordan
Is it gonna be more like a state Visit or just an official 2 days visit?

As I understand it President Bush's visit is more along the lines of a quick meeting to discuss all the turmoil in the Middle East, especially after the murder of Pierre Gemayel. I don't think it's an actual state visit as such.

The next week is going to be a very busy one for King Abdullah and Queen Rania. With all the visits abroad and foreign guests coming to Jordan, we dont want all the news to get lost in the crowd.

Please help us keep things organized by posting your comments, links to news and pictures, in the relevant threads:

Visit to Kuwait

State visit to India

Thank you

By her and other women's activists in Jordan the quota system was and is promoted as something that is necessary until Jordanians become more accustomed to seeing women in public office: as the maybe only way to convince them that women can be qualified deputies worth to be elected.
In 2003 she encouraged female candidates to run for election and her office provided rsums of their qualifications.
Thanx for the information Veram98.
