A member of the Jordanian Independent Electoral Commission carries a polling box to be distributed to the polling stations, one day before the designated date of the Jordanian parliamentary elections, in Amman, Jordan, Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013. King Abdullah II is trying to control the pace of change, ceding enough of his absolute powers to parliament in hopes of forestalling any Arab Spring-style uprisings like the ones that toppled autocratic leaders in Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Tunisia and devolved into a bloody civil war in Syria. But the Muslim Brotherhood and others in the opposition say his moves do not go far or fast enough to end his monopoly on power. (AP Photo/Mohammad Hannon)
