The Arab Ba'ath Progressive Party (Arabic: حزب البعث العربي التقدميḤizb Al-Ba'aṯ Al-'Arabī Al-Taqadumi) is a political party in Jordan. It is the Jordanian regional branch of the Syrian-led Ba'ath Party. It was legally registered for the first time in 1993.[2] The party is small, and has, according to a WikiLeaks document, "minuscule number of adherents".[2] Despite it small size, the branch is able to get a decent footprint in Jordanian media through its leader, Fuad Dabbour.[2] Dabbour's fiery statements on foreign policy are frequently quoted by the press.[2] The party is less known than its pro-Iraqi counterpart, the Jordanian Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party.[3] It is the party branch of the Syrian-dominated Ba'ath Party in Jordan.[4] Fuad Dabbour is the branch's Regional Secretary.[5] It is believed that the party has fewer than 200 members.[6]
