King tasks Razzaz with forming new government


The Jordan Times


AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Tuesday entrusted Omar Razzaz with forming a new government, succeeding that of Hani Mulki, who resigned on Monday.
In the letter of designation, King Abdullah directed Razzaz and his yet-to-be-formed team to launch a comprehensive national reform scheme that seeks to “empower the Jordanian people” and enable them to realise their potential and meet their needs and demands.
King Abdullah said the key challenge facing Jordan is the slow economic growth.
The government's priority, His Majesty said, is to stimulate economic growth, enhance the country’s competitiveness and create jobs for the youth.
King Abdullah instructed the government to immediately launch a dialogue about the income tax draft law in coordination with the Parliament, the political parties, the professional associations and the civil society organisations.
