XII-Establishing a compensations fund for the political activists who have peacefully taken part in the revolution against the Hashemite regime. The fund will secure that money allocated to the activists will be more than the unemployment allowance. Additional funds will be allocated to activists who have suffered physical and emotional harm due to their political activism.
XIII-Issuing an act by which racial discrimination is criminalized and punishable by law. Acts of discrimination will be legally recognized as a misdemeanor or even a felony if an act of discrimination results in physical harm or destruction of property.
XIV-Issuing a new act by which the General Intelligence Department is de-commissioned, and a new intelligence agency is established under the name: The Jordanian Intelligence Agency, which will be committed to securing Jordan from external threats, and, as is the case with the CIA and the MI6, it will be banned from interfering with the country’s internal affairs.
CAN THE JCORF BE SUPPORTED?
In November 2012, the Syrian opposition in exile formed the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces with the aim of “replacing the Assad government and its symbols and pillars of support within days, it received recognition from the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf.” , the Arab League  the EU  and the US..
This international recognition will help the NCSRO in forming an interim government once Syria’s Bashar Al-Assad falls; JCORF is seeking the same line of support to replace King Abdullah if or when he falls.
International recognition for the JCORF might not come as quickly as was the case for its Syrian counterpart, because the King of Jordan is still in power, unlike Assad who has lost control over massive parts of Syria .
Nonetheless, the international community might start looking for an entity to talk to once the king begins to lose control over Jordanian towns. Therefore, those concerned for Jordan’s stability should secure support methods for JCORF now as a “Plan B” for when/if Jordan’s king falls, in order to give the JCORF the advantage over the Muslim Brotherhood.
THE INTERIM GOVERNMENT IS THE WINNER
Forming an interim government after the King falls is what the JCORF is aiming to achieve, this is a following of the Syrian opposition’s model as the Syrian National Collation of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces is already creating a government in exile that might serve as an interim government if the Syrian regime falls.  The Syrian National Collation for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces has been empowered to take this step by the US recognition of it which followed a British recognition; Foreign Secretary William Hague said the UK has decided to recognise the Syrian opposition coalition. . President Barack Obama said the US now formally recognises Syria’s main opposition coalition as “the legitimate representative” of the Syrian people. .
The recognition of the UK and then the US was followed by recognition from more than 100 countries. 
The international support for the Syrian National Collation of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces is what grants its legitimacy and prominence. Despite the fact that there are many opposition players on the ground in Syria.
It might be beneficial for JCORF to follow its Syrian counterpart’s model. Nonetheless, the situation in Jordan is not as intense as that of Syria; therefore, the international recognition process might take some time. Still, international powers will have JCORF to talk to once the regime begins to fall.
Those concerned for Jordan’s stability and peacefulness should seek to promote the JCORF with international powers in the West.
Once JCORF is situated in an interim government, it will have access to state funds and bureaucracy which will enable it to build credibility with the public and rally the support for the secular opposition’s member needed for it to win presidential and parliamentary elections.
Once in an interim government in Jordan, JCORF intends to take the following steps to establish a stable, democratic and peaceful Jordan:
I. To establish a constitution drafting committee that will put a constitution into referendum. The draft constitution will be aimed at securing human rights and dignity for Jordanians and establish a civil state.
II. Running Presidential elections where the president is elected by public vote.
