    Jordan’s King Abdullah II appointed former cabinet official Hani Mulki to lead the new government, the Royal Hashemite Court (RHC) said on Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – King Abdullah II issued a decree dissolving the lower house of parliament and replacing Mulki's predecessor, Abdullah Ensour, earlier in the day.

    "His Majesty King Abdullah II instructed Dr Hani Mulki to form a new Government, replacing the Government of Dr Abdullah Ensour, who submitted his resignation to his Majesty today," the RHC tweeted via its official account.

    Mulki held foreign, trade and other ministerial posts in the late 1990s and early-to-mid 2000s.
