Scepticism mars Jordan polls

Main opposition party boycotts upcoming elections as politicians are accused of failing the public.


    Jordanians are making their choice for a new parliament on Tuesday.

    The vote is being boycotted by the country's main opposition group.

    Last year, Jordan's king dissolved parliament after accusing politicians of failing to address the people's needs.
