Jordan: Initial Election Results Show Islamists Picking Up Seats

About three dozen Islamists and other critics of the government who ran as independents have won seats in Jordan's parliament despite a boycott by the Muslim Brotherhood, initial results released Jan. 24 indicated, AP reported. The initial results showed loyalists of King Abdullah II retaining a majority of the seats, though fewer than in the 2010 parliamentary election. At least 27 deputies from the 2010 legislature were re-elected, and women won 17 seats. The results will broadly impact popular reaction to upcoming cuts in key subsidies.
