AMMAN — Twenty-seven political parties have agreed on the need to draft a new elections law that does not follow the one-person, one-vote formula and gives a greater role to political parties, Oraib Rantawi, director of Al Quds Centre for Political Studies, said on Saturday.

Rantawi said the parties also agreed on the need to amend the Political Parties Law by revisiting the definition of a political party to align it with the internationally accepted one.
