Jordan's King Abdullah II is touting Wednesday's parliamentary elections as the centerpiece of political reforms aimed at addressing the simmering discontent in his realm.
Danya Greenfield, deputy director of the Atlantic Council's Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, said the elections and the culmination of the reform process represent "a missed opportunity on the part of the king and the government to fully implement and actualize the vision that was really put forward."
"The lack of this progress has cast doubts on the reform process, and the widespread apathy and the lack of enthusiasm that is shown for the elections is really a testament to the mismatch between the king's rhetoric … and what has actually emerged on the ground," Ms. Greenfield said at the Atlantic Council last week.
