King Abdullah hopes the November 20 election will bolster the country's democratic credentials as a close ally of the United States and has urged a high turnout.
Here is a chronology of Jordan since Abdullah came to power: yahoonews

Jordan's king swears in gov't after election controversy

King Abdullah II, pictured, appointed Prime Minister Nader Dahabi on Thursday to replace Marouf Al-Bakheet. (Getty Images)</STRONG>

Jordan's pro-US. King Abdullah II swore in a new government on Sunday charged with speeding up modernisation of the kingdom.

Prime Minister Nader Dahabi, a former air force chief who transformed the special economic zone in the Red Sea port of Aqaba into a haven for multi-billion dollar investments, was appointed by the king on Thursday to replace Marouf Al-Bakheet, who resigned following last week's parliamentary elections.

The parliamentary elections, which were marred by accusations of vote buying and fraud, consolidated the power of tribal leaders, pro-government figures and businessmen on the 110-assembly. Jordan's king swears in gov't after election controversy - Politics & Economics - ArabianBusiness.com

I hadn't heard of the Naseej progam before, it sounds similar to Injaz. However, for such a young organisation its results so far are very impressive!
