In "Democratization in the Arab World? The Trap of Liberalized Autocracy" (Volume 13, No. 4, October 2002), Daniel Brumberg 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.
