AMMAN, Jordan — Jordan's largest opposition party alleged fraud and vote buying took place in last week's parliamentary elections that saw supporters of King Abdullah II win a majority of seats.

The Islamic Action Front claimed in a statement Sunday that a large number of voters cast ballots outside their electoral districts, while others voted twice with two different national identity numbers.

It also alleged that vote buying took place outside polling stations in some districts. It claimed handouts ranged from $240 to $1,414 per voter.
