In Jordan, Private Royal Grievances Go Public
In Jordan, the arrest of a former crown prince reveals a kingdom uncertain of how to address its pandemic-induced economic crisis, which could harm Jordan’s reputation for stability if the monarchy fails to deter further high-profile displays of dissent from its own family members, as well as the general public. On April 3, Jordanian authorities arrested 20 people for an alleged plot to overthrow the government deemed to be a “threat to the country’s stability.” The most high-profile of the arrests include the former crown prince and half-brother of Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Hamzah bin Hussein, and his mother, who were both reportedly under house arrest as authorities conduct an investigation. Prince Hamzah released a video late on April 3 to the BBC claiming he was being silenced because he spoke out about corruption in Jordan and the “incompetence that has been prevalent in our governing structure for the last

Bolivia's president-elect, Luis Arce, celebrates his electoral victory during a rally in El Alto, Bolivia on Oct. 24, 2020.
A Tall Order Awaits Bolivia’s New President
Luis Arce, the presidential candidate from Bolivia's Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party, won more than 50 percent of the vote in the South American country's long-delayed election, which will facilitate a smooth power transition by eliminating the need for a runoff. Arce’s initial success and ability to attract fresh foreign investment, however, will hinge on creating and executing a credible plan for Bolivia’s post-pandemic economic recovery. On Oct. 20, Arce unveiled some of the economic measures he plans to tackle first upon taking office, including the immediate distribution of emergency funds to all Bolivians (which his own party had blocked the past three months), a proposed new wealth tax for the richest Bolivians, and the start of negotiations with international lenders to restructure Bolivia’s foreign debt.
