Jordan's democracy on par with Bahrain, Syria, and Egypt under Mubarak.

On November 9th, the FDA audited Jordan's parliamentary electoral system, in which Jordan received a 0 percent score overall and 0 percent scores in all four sections of electoral fairness. The overall score means that FDA auditors could find no overall, free standing element of fairness in Jordan's parliamentary electoral system.

With no public transparency of electoral finances, restrictions on freedom of expression, and the Jordanian king above law, any element of fairness in Jordan's electoral system is canceled out.

The FDA electoral fairness report on Jordan will be produced shortly.
