NAMA Strategic Intelligence Solutions conducted a nationally representative survey, in collaboration with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, exploring Jordanians’ perceptions towards the elections. A booster sample compromising of university students was also surveyed to further gain insight on the perspectives of youth.
Looking at the main results, about a third of the total number of respondents illustrated they would definitely not vote in the upcoming municipal elections while over a half of the respondents showed an interest in voting. Further analysis shows that Jordanians mainly disengage in elections because they do not trust the integrity of elections and find it useless as indicated by 46.82% of the national sample. The universities’ sample illustrated similar results, with the lack of trust and incompetent candidates being the top reasons for not wanting to vote in the upcoming elections.
