Jordan`s information minister resigns

Jordan`s information minister says he has resigned because of disagreements over laws he says restrict media freedoms.



Amman: Jordan`s information
minister says he has resigned because of disagreements over
laws he says restrict media freedoms.

Taher Edwan is the third Cabinet minister to quit in
three weeks. It was not immediately clear whether Prime
Minister Marouf al-Bakhit accepted the resignation.

Edwan said today he quit to protest a press and
publications draft law that he called a "violation of the
freedom of expression and the country`s strategy for
liberalising the media."

He declined to elaborate.
The Cabinet is to present the press draft law and
other new legislation to parliament for endorsement this week.
