Jordan’s independent electoral commission set September 10 as the date for parliamentary elections on Wednesday after King Abdullah earlier issued a decree to hold the polls this year, state media reported.

The monarch had repeatedly said he wanted elections to be held when the parliament’s four-year term ends this year to allow for multi-party elections.

Under the constitution, the multi-party election is usually held within four months of the end of a four-year term of parliament.
