This paper examines issues concerning the state's financial contribution to political parties. It argues that the weakness of parties' financial resources limits their ability to engage in political activities and elections. The purpose of this paper is thus to provide a number of options and recommendation to help decision makers form the state's system for financing political parties. It aims to provide suitable financial support for each political party, encourage the development of political parties in Jordan, raise the political efficiency of political parties, develop their organizational structures, and motivate parties to participate in political life at national and local levels. This paper analyzes the positives and negatives of four financing options and, based on this analysis, presents a suggested system to assist decision makers as they design the state's financing mechanism for political parties.
