The Arab Ba'ath Progressive Party (Arabic: حزب البعث العربي التقدمي Ḥizb 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. The party is small, and has, according to a WikiLeaks document, "minuscule number of adherents". Despite it small size, the branch is able to get a decent footprint in Jordanian media through its leader, Fuad Dabbour. Dabbour's fiery statements on foreign policy are frequently quoted by the press. The party is less known than its pro-Iraqi counterpart, the Jordanian Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party. It is the party branch of the Syrian-dominated Ba'ath Party in Jordan. Fuad Dabbour is the branch's Regional Secretary. It is believed that the party has fewer than 200 members.
The party's stated objectives are:
- The struggle for the supremacy and institutionalization of democracy as well as the rule of law and constitution.
- The removal of control of the people’s will and achievement of political and economic reform in the interest of the people.
- Adherence to the monotheistic religions and respect of the national heritage and the Arab nation’s unity.
- Consolidation of the democratic system and the achievement of Arab economic integration.
