Jordan: Abdullah Seeks to Prevent Elections Boycott
Jordan's King Abdullah has urged his citizens not to boycott the upcoming parliamentary elections. Voting is to take place next month.
His political opponents, and the Muslim Brotherhood in particular, have called on citizens not to vote. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt seized power in that country after an uprising to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak.
