In 2010 Dale Gavlak cited a "Jamal al-Tahat, Writer" in a BBC story about Jordan's elections as saying that "Even traditionalists don't believe a free election will take place. There's little trust of the current system and government and the vague discourse used by the regime over the past few years".[5]
