Please tell me who to vote for in the 5th district


OK.. I have not blogged about the elections. I have left that to other, much more capable bloggers. Election day is 15 minutes away and I still have not decided who I should elect tomorrow.

I spent some time looking at election ads and posters. I even followed some of the election coverage in the dailies. But not one candidate sent me his/her electoral program. I found one candidate who has a web site. Other than than that all I saw was lots of semi smiling men with mustaches.

I am in a bind here.

So I am outsourcing the decision to you, my dear readers.

Who do you think I should vote for in Amman’s 5th district, and why.

    Thanks for the link. This is the best thing I’ve seen in this whole election campaign. It doesn’t have all the candidates in the 5th District, but I was finally able to get some info on some of the candidates.

    Now on a negative note, I was not impressed with the candidates. Will have another look in the morning.

    I am supposed to be voting in the 6th District but have given up the idea as I cannot get any good info on the candidates and my lack of fluency in Arabic precludes me from reading about them. Wish I had changed my District to the 3rd then I would have had no problem. But it is the lack of political parties with a platform which I find the most difficult to cope with. I would much rather vote for a candidate who belongs to a party as then it would be clear (?!) that they would have influence in parliament. T

    You always have the option of leaving A BLANK PAPER!

    I guess you are originally from Nabluse, so find a Nabulsi candidate and vote for him, this a way of thinking about it :)

    Ahmad, go for a blank paper. It says that you care about the country and that you are not happy with this situation. Unfortunately, I reissued my ID this year so it does not say that I am registered in the 5th district.. So I can it go.
