This research aims to address the crime of electoral bribery in the Jordanian Election Law No. 6 of 2016. It is considered one of the most serious electoral crimes because it affects the results of the election by influencing the will of voters by illegal means. This study has clarified the legal provisions of this crime by analyzing Article 59 of the Election Law. Researchers concluded that this crime consists of two elements: the material element and the moral element. In this regard, researchers noticed that the legislator does not consider the status of the offender in this crime, unlike the traditional crime of bribery. The study then discussed the punishment of this crime. At the end of the research, researchers mentioned the results they reached and the recommendations they hope to be adopted by the Jordanian legislator.
