Jordan: Islamic Action Front to run in parliament polls
In 2016, party won 14 seats out of 130

By Laight al-Jnaidi
AMMAN (AA) – Jordan's Islamic Action Front announced on Monday it will run in the parliamentary elections slated for Nov. 10.

The announcement came in a press conference in the capital Amman by the party’s deputy secretary general, Wael al-Sakka.

The decision comes a day after Jordanian authorities on Sunday arrested the executive director of the party’s central election committee, Badi al-Rafiah, on charges of "insulting the president of a friendly country."

After boycotting elections in 2010 and 2013, the party competed in the 2016 polls under the National Reform Alliance and won 14 seats out of 130.
