AMMAN, Jordan — Jordan's largest opposition group on Monday dismissed four members because of their refusal to heed its boycott of next month's parliamentary elections.

Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Jamil Abu Bakr said the group's tribunal expelled members Mohammed Masaad, Madallah al-Tarawneh, Aref Abu-Eid and Ahmed al-Qadah.

Abu Bakr said that the Islamic Action Front, the Brotherhood's political arm, will take its own decision later about whether to expel three other members also flouting the boycott.

The group is boycotting the Nov. 9 poll to protest a new law reducing seats for lawmakers in urban areas, where it has influence. The May legislation increased seats from in rural areas dominated by pro-government tribes.
