Jordan PM submits resignation to King Abdullah II
Amman: Jordan`s Prime Minister Awn Khasawneh on Thursday submitted his resignation to King Abdullah II, barely six months after he formed a government to bring in much-needed reforms, a senior official said.
"His Majesty, the king, accepted Khasawneh`s resignation Thursday morning," he said without elaborating.
Khasawneh, 62, an International Court of Justice judge, formed his cabinet in October and won a comfortable vote of confidence for his government from parliament in December after pledging to push ahead with reforms.
Jordanians have been demonstrating since January last year, demanding sweeping political and economic reforms as well as an end to corruption.
