Jordan's Brotherhood wants polls postponed

Country's largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood, calls for boycott of parliamentary vote.

    Jordan will hold parliamentary elections this week, but many voters are planning to boycott the polls.

    Some citizens are demanding new electoral laws and for political reforms that would end King Abdullah's power to select the government.

    The boycott is led by the Muslim Brotherhood, Jordan’s largest and most popular opposition group. The party is demanding a postponement of the polls.
