Reuters , Wednesday 7 Oct 2020

Jordan's King Abdullah appointed veteran diplomat and palace aide Bisher al Khasawneh as the new prime minister only days after accepting the resignation of Omar al-Razzaz, the royal palace said.

The monarch earlier dissolved parliament at the end of its four-year term in a move that under constitutional rules meant the government had to resign within a week.
