Following an invitation from the Independent Election Commission of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the European Union established a Mission to observe the Parliamentary Elections scheduled for January 2013 in that country.

The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) was led by Chief Observer David Martin, a Member of the European Parliament from the UK.

The Mission comprised about 80 Experts and Observers from 27 EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland. Observers were deployed throughout the country. They met with government and electoral officials, candidates and political parties, civil society representatives and the media.

The members of the EU EOM remained neutral and abided by the EU Election Observation Code of Conduct and the laws of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
