The Jordanian Voters Awarenessof the Factors that Determine their Voting A Case Study of Parliament Elections for the Year 2003

Auther : Mohammed A. Al Hazaymeh

This study aims at defining Jordanian voters awareness of factors which determined their voting in the 2003 election. The study revolves around the hypothesis that Jordanian voters are far more motivated by tribal, familial and religious loyalties than by party politics. To prove the validity or invalidity of this hypothesis, the author used a variety of methods such as the historical, statistical, sociological, psychological and the analytical. The author determined the attitudes of voters by using one closed question distributed over 5000 questionnaires. All of the questionnaires were retained except for 622 of them which were excluded for being null and void.

The results of the study proved the validity of the proposed hypothesis as they proved the following:

The failure of political parties to attract voters to vote in their favor

Candidates representing tribes, religious inclinations or services were able to earn the greater number of votes.

The general voting climate was determined by such mores that tended to favor the traditional, tribal and masculine values and the resulting exclusion of female representation.

The unjust distribution of Parliamentary seats.

The study came out with a number of recommendations all calling for enhancing political awareness and participation, a full representation of political parties, the elimination of the one vote system, and the approval of the personal civil ID as a voting card to be kept, stamped then returned when elections are over.
