• JORDAN HOLDS MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS

    0

    AMMAN: Jordan goes to the polls for municipal elections on Tuesday with the strain of a massive Syrian refugee influx on an already struggling economy stoking voter apathy and resentment. The main opposition Muslim Brotherhood is boycotting the polls, charging that, despite repeated promises since the Arab Spring of 2011, there is no real readiness for change. With few candidates of the leftist or nationalist opposition standing, tribal figures, who are the traditional bedrock of the monarchy, are set to sweep the elections.
