Thousands of Islamists gathered in Jordan's capital to protest.
Protesters raised flags and banners and chanted anti-government slogans during the demonstration Friday in Amman.
The protest took place a day after Jordan's royal palace said King Abdullah had dissolved parliament. That move sets the stage for early parliamentary elections.
Jordan's government says the elections are a result of reforms it made that spared Jordan the Arab Spring uprisings that have toppled four Middle East rulers.
But critics say the electoral reforms do not go far enough to eliminate inequities that ensure parliamentary strength for supporters of King Abdullah or that curtail his absolute powers.
King Abdullah has said a new parliament will elect a prime minister early next year, in response to popular demand. The king has traditionally appointed the prime minister.
The palace did not say when the parliamentary elections will take place. VoA.
