Jordan Islamists prepare reform proposal
Published August 16th 2005 in WebIndia.com
Jordan's Islamists, including Islamic Action Front and the Muslim  
Brotherhood Organization, developed a proposal for political reform  
based on Islamic law.

An Islamist source said Tuesday the document will be published in the  
next few days. He said the document, which was largely inspired by  
Islamic law, aims at achieving comprehensive political and economic  
reforms for boosting political stability and social and economic  
prosperity and consolidating Jordan's Arab and Islamic identity.

The document underlines the need to draft a modern election law based  
on proportional representation and reforming the laws for political  
parties, municipalities and the media.

It also stresses the importance of peaceful rotation of power as a  
basis for political life.
