Abstract

The documentary deals with the democratic life in Jordan, mainly after the founding of the emirate, in 1921. In 1928, under the reign of Prince Abdallah, the first municipal councils were formed, and the first government led by Rachid Tali'a was implemented . In 1946, Britain recognized the independence of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the constitution of the Kingdom was adopted, in 1947 . It emphasized on the parliamentary monarchy system, and the right to found parties and associations. In the same year, the first parliament, composed of 20 deputies and 10 notables, was elected for four years. This was the first democratic experience in the region,despite its difficult political conditions. During the 90's, the representation of the political parties was allowed, under the reign of Al Hussein, and the democratic dimension has become irreversible. .
