Ahmad Massaadeh appointed secretary general of Union for the Mediterranean

13 janvier 2010

Representatives from the Union for the Mediterranean countries, on Tuesday 12th January in Brussels, backed Jordan’s Ahmad Massaadeh to be new secretary general of the  Union  for the  Mediterranean. The decision was referred to the foreign ministers of the union for a final endorsement within a period of two weeks in order to enable the new secretary general to assume office at the union’s secretariat headquarters in Barcelona, Spain, next month.

Massaadeh is a lawyer and career diplomat, who has been Jordan’s ambassador to the European Union, Belgium, Norway and Luxembourg, as well as the Jordan’s representative to NATO since August 2006.

    It is a clar indication of the lack of equal opportunities in the so called Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, as Mr.Massadeh is parachuted himself to be an Ambassador after serving as Minister for Public Adminstartion for a couple of months( it is a well known practice to appoint ex-ministers and generals as Ambassadors by the Jordanian regime to win back loyalties). He is not a carrer diplomat, and his methods when running the Jordanian Embassy in Belgium lack a sense of transperancy and democracy… It is disappointing that such a great idea as the UFM is will be hindered by the newly appointed S.G Mr. Massadeh,The hope that this new European project to bring transparency and human rights to our Southern shores of the Mediterranean has undoubtedly been given a great blow!!!
