Jordan's king inaugurates new parliament

Published: 02.10.13, 13:10 / Israel News

Jordan's king has inaugurated the kingdom's newly elected parliament with a pledge to press ahead with democratization, but added that he will help choose the next prime minister despite the choice having been formally given to the legislature.


King Abdullah's speech was delivered on Sunday to lawmakers elected last month. Government officials say that this legislature will have more power than any of its predecessors, in line with a reform process meant to forestall any large-scale Arab Spring unrest. (AP)
