Sometimes it is hard to change the local policies at home, even if you are the one in charge; however there are always things that would make the change smoother even if you know that it will take a time to happen.

Still, we need to be realistic about our demands, there are things that cannot be changed easily and it is waste of time to even try to change them. Therefore, we better focus our efforts on fighting for essential demands, which can be obtained by a single signature by the decision maker in charge.

Such demands would definitely make Jordanian lives easier, more productive and compatible with the state of the art technologies.

1) Taxes and Meaningless fees on some items like Laptops, Desktops and computer accessories, Still Cameras, Video Cameras and Photography accessories4 matter why
2) Importing books should be tax-free, as I believe that this is the second best option since getting the government to sponsor importing books seems out of the question.

The above-mentioned suggestions would surely sound more realistic and doable if we could find other ways to replace the sources of tax money from those suggested tax -exempted items. So here, I suggest the following:

1-) Increase the tax value on cigarettes, hookahs and related products.
2-) Strictly, enforce applying of traffic laws and regulations with no exceptions.
3-) Activate the role of the environmental police in different parts of the kingdom. This would surely bring double benefits; it would increase them amounts of collected fines and keep our environment free of harm.

As a candidate, I promise I will focus all my efforts to turn those suggestions into real actions for the benefit of Jordan, country and people.

As a concerned citizen, I do have many other suggestions. But since I can't promise accomplishing them as it seems hard to do so because they are either controversial or require some tough rounds with business whales who either have close ties with decision makers or even are decision makers themselves. What I can promise in this regard is talking about these issues and raising the public awareness of the importance of implementing them hoping that this would eventually be realized. One of these suggestions would be getting the private companies to give back to society 10% of their net profit and of their advertising campaigns .This money will be invested in financing charity projects and education and health organization. The other suggestion would be enforcing what I call '' Mosque Tax'' which is to collect the sum of 1 JD and allocate this money to maintaining mosques cleanness, paying the Imam salary, implementing mobile signals blocker and renewing the staled carpets

So people, these are my promises and this is what I can do if I got elected.

Vote for me or may God not let you vote.
