The head of the Journalists' Syndicate in Jordan resigned from his position on Wednesday. [ said that he does not intend to stand for the job again in the future.
Al-Saaydeh took to Facebook to explain that he has had enough of "injustice, denial, ingratitude and abuse", but he did not provide any specific details.
However, in a separate Facebook post, he said that, "The Journalists' Syndicate has a duty to fight corruption, not to protect corruption for electoral reasons. Any union that practices such actions and provides such protection to every corrupt [official] is a traitor to his country, his mission and his profession, and is a criminal."
There was no immediate comment from the Jordanian government or the Council of the Press Syndicate regarding Al-Saaydeh's comments.
His resignation comes only two weeks after the editor-in-chief of the government's Al-Rai resigned due to disagreements with the newspaper's board of directors.
