The Role of the Independent Commission for Monitoring Elections in the Integrity of the Election Process in Jordan

Auther : Yousef S. Almseidin Majed A. Almarashdeh

Since election is generally considered a standard of justice and integrity, the process of running and monitoring elections is one of the most important stages of promoting democracy. The importance of this study is attributed to the fact that the parliamentary elections of 2013 in Jordan were monitored by an independent commission established in 2012.Its importance also emerges from the commission's role in conducting free elections that would promote the citizens' trust in the election process. This study is also significant due to the fact that the election process has been governed by a permanent election act for the first time since the return of democratic life in 1989.Hence, the major objective of this study is to identifying the role that can be played by the commission in regulating a free election process, for it was the first time in the history of Jordan that parliamentary elections were held under the umbrella of the Independent Commission for Monitoring Elections.
