In "Democratization in the Arab
World? The Trap of
Liberalized Autocracy" (Volume 13, No. 4, October 2002), Daniel
wrote that the Islamists won 20 of the parliament's 50 seats in the 1999
elections in Jordan. In fact, the last Jordanian elections were held in
1997 and were boycotted by the Islamist party. Moreover, there are 80
rather than 50 seats in the parliament. The Journal of Democracy
regrets the errors.
