AMMAN –– His Majesty King Abdullah on Monday tasked Royal Court Chief Fayez Tarawneh to start consultations with the Lower House to select a prime minister, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, said.

The new mechanism of government formation reflects the King’s vision in establishing parliamentary governments with the aim of developing political life in the Kingdom.

Consultations with the House will take place at Basman Palace, Petra said, adding that Tarawneh’s responsibilities will include meeting all deputies, be they independent and members of blocs, to listen to their views and convey them to the King.

King Abdullah on Sunday opened the 17th Parliament first session. In his Speech from the Throne, King Abdullah said that once deputies agree on a prime minister, he/she will then start consultations with House members on the formation of the Cabinet.
