From Waqt Al Farah To Jordan's Parliament
One of my childhood memories I remember with more lucidity is a JTV program called Waqt al Farah; I am sure this program has largely affected all Jordanian youth of that time. The program was quite innovative, with a naive design and a fancy red-fish mascot, all mixed with a high dosage of childish happiness, meaningless songs I still remember and a cute young presenter named Aroub Soubh.
A few years later, I have suddenly started to read her articles on Ad Dustour newspaper, which reserved her a right column on its last paper… the result was extraordinary, as her strong opinions and brilliant thoughts were going well with the other Ad Dustour's sarcastic writer Youssef Ghishan.
Aroub was expressing a new idea on different political and social issues everyday, and although I didn't expect that, the articles were well written. By sure I was not the only one who liked her personal method of exposing opinions.
I don't know the reason she left Ad Dustour, however a few posts on her blog do prove her potential, now, she defines herself as a freelance journalist, while she will (?) present a program on ATV called Samehni (or something like that).
Some time ago, I have discovered a Facebook group called Vote For Aroub Soubh, it is the Facebook's support group for Aroub's candidacy to the next parliamentary elections that will be held in November. In fact, Aroub will run for parliament in this year's elections in Amman's Third District (Zahran-Abdali) with a higher probability of success as women quota are re-approved in Jordan's electoral panel.
Even if you like her or not, Aroub's popularity is above suspicion, I was monitoring the Facebook's group for weeks and its members are increasing daily (They are now 992!).
I will not be surprised to see Aroub Soubh as a future MP, and, in reality, I hope that! Let's vote for Aroub Soubh!
