AMMAN — Ninety-seven members of the Lower House intend to run for the upcoming parliamentary elections, according to a poll by the Civil Coalition for Monitoring Elections and the Performance of Elected Councils (Rased).

The findings of the poll issued on Saturday added that 50 per cent of MPs ruled out the possibility of dissolving the current Lower House, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Rased's study, which surveyed a representative sample of 128 parliamentarians, shows that 15 female members of the House intend to run for the upcoming elections, slated for November 10.  A Royal Decree had directed the concerned agencies to hold parliamentary elections in accordance with the provisions of law.
