Pro-government candidates gain strength in Jordan
Text size Aa Aa

Pro-government candidates have strengthened their hold on Jordan’s parliament.

The growth of tribalism in the politics of Jordan has stunted the growth of national parties.

The Muslim Brotherhood-led opposition boycotted Wednesday’s vote saying it was biased against them.
