AMMAN — The heads of two electoral committees were relieved from their duties on Wednesday by the Independent Elections Commission, a report by observers said.
The national team to monitor the elections, led by the National Centre for Human Rights, said in a report carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, that there were complaints against the two election officials accusing them of "bias".
The team also reported vote buying attempts by candidate supporters in Amman's 3rd and 7th districts and in Balqa Governorate.
The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) to the Kingdom on Monday deployed 28 short-term observers (STO).
