Meanwhile, there's another election in the neighborhood today, in Jordan. The fact that the Islamic Action Front (the Muslim Brotherhood's Jordanian political wing) is boycotting makes the election controversial. For background until we have results, see this Foreign Policy piece by Curtis Ryan, "What to Expect From Jordan's Elections."
