A statement issued on Saturday, by the Amman Teachers' Committee in Jordan  criticized Dr. Khaled Al Karaki, the new Education Minister  for failing to correct mistakes made by former Education minister Ibrahim Badran
 
The statement highlighted that teachers who were initially optimistic were disappointed after Al Karaki maintained that the ministry has no intention to repeal the "arbitrary" measures practiced against teachers, including early retirement and moving teachers to distant school districts
 
Teachers retaliated arguing they had a constitutional right to revive a professional association, asserting that they will continue calling for their demands of establishing the association that would safeguard their rights and regulate their affairs. The teachers ascertained they were seriously contemplating boycotting the upcoming parliamentary elections to illustrate their anger
 
The boycott decision  will amplify the opposing national movement's stance of boycotting the elections slated for November 9, including the Muslim Brotherhood offshoot the Islamic Action Front the Retired Military Personnel Committee, and the Popular Unity Political Party, among others
