Mideast Jordan Elections

Demonstraters wave the Jordanian flag during a protest by the Muslim Brotherhood movement and other opposition parties against the upcoming parliamentary elections, in Amman, Jordan, Friday, Jan. 18, 2013. Friday's peaceful demonstration drew about 1,300 Muslim Brotherhood members and others, united in the election boycott and in demands that King Abdullah II cede some of his powers and give parliament more say in the country. The demonstration comes just five days before elections that will for the first time see a prime minister emerge from among the winning candidates, rather than by appointment by the king.
