(May 02, 2008) On April 16, 2008, the Jordanian Ministry of the Interior declared that only 14 political parties have met the conditions imposed by Law No. 19 of 2007, which places the parties under the Ministry's control and increases the required number of founding members in a new party to 500. Among the parties that were able to adjust their status to conform to the new, controversial law is the Islamic Action Front, which is the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan.
