Jordan's largest opposition group said Tuesday that it will take part in the parliamentary elections in November. The Islamic Action Front ended speculation about its participation after it withdrew from July's local elections citing government fraud. A press statement issued by the Front, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement, said that "in view of the difficult national and regional situation and to spare our youth from pessimism and depression, which could lead to violence and destruction ... the Front's leadership has to participate in the elections." The Front has 17 seats in Jordan's 110-member parliament. But the group has lost much of its clout in recent years for failing to deliver on pledges to address rampant unemployment and poverty.
