EU observers do not interfere in the electoral process. That’s why all the EU Election Observation Missions always present their findings after the Election Day. The EU EOM to Jordan makes no exception. The preliminary statement of the EU EOM Mission to Jordan - our first public assessment - will be issued at a press conference on 22 September at 11:00 at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Amman.

EU EOM observers attend campaign activities, such as rallies and public meetings or debates, as part of their observation of the campaign period across Jordan. They attend events organized by a broad range of parties

The media have a great deal of responsibility placed on them during election periods.
That’s why the EU EOM to Jordan is monitoring media through a Media Monitoring Unit, which has begun its observation 20 days before Elections. The Unit assess the coverage of the campaign by some of the most important Jordanian media, including TV channels, radios and newspapers

26 EU long-term observers have been deployed across Jordan for two weeks now. They have spent this time holding meetings with stakeholders and observing the campaign. But their work has just begun and they will have three more weeks to meet with candidates, lists, electoral authorities, civil society’s representatives and – of course - the Jordanian voters. The aim is to have a clear picture of what is happening in their area of observation and all across Jordan
