Jordan elects a legislature on the national level. The parliament of Jordan has two chambers. The Chamber of Deputies has 110 members, 104 elected for a four-year term in single-seat constituencies and 6 female members by a special electoral college. Of the 110 seats, Christians are reserved 9 seats and Chechens/Circassians are reserved 3. The Assembly of Senators has 55 members appointed by the king.
In response to the 2011 Jordanian protests, the Cabinet was changed to an elected cabinet. Jordan has political parties, but they do not play a significant role, as supporters of the king dominate both chambers.
