Jordan's Islamists, including Islamic Action Front and the Muslim Brotherhood Organization, developed a proposal for political reform based on Islamic law.

An Islamist source said Tuesday the document will be published in the next few days. He said the document, which was largely inspired by Islamic law, aims at achieving comprehensive political and economic reforms for boosting political stability and social and economic prosperity and consolidating Jordan's Arab and Islamic identity.

The document underlines the need to draft a modern election law based on proportional representation and reforming the laws for political parties, municipalities and the media.

It also stresses the importance of peaceful rotation of power as a basis for political life.
