List of political parties in Jordan

This article lists political parties in Jordan. Jordan has 30 different political parties, but apart from the oppositional Islamic Action Front and neutral Jordanian National Youth Party, none of them play a real role because of lack of organization and clear political platforms.

The role of parties is significantly limited by institutional factors as well. The king is vested with very broad executive authority, making it difficult for a party to win control of the government solely at the ballot box. Additionally, the electoral system is significantly malapportioned in favour of rural areas.[1]

There is no clear picture on the political parties in Jordan, but sources mention the following parties.
