Jordan: Residents react as PM Mulki resigns following mass protests

Residents of Amman reacted to the resignation of Jordan's Prime Minister Hani Mulki, on Monday. Mulki was requested to step down by King Abdullah II amid large-scale anti-government protests in the country. According to reports, after accepting Mulki's resignation, King Abdullah II asked Jordan's Education Minister Omar Al-Razzaz to form a new government. Some local residents said they... Еще welcomed the change. One said: «I am satisfied with this decision. Omar Al-Razzaz was successful in the positions he was taking; and the people and institutions in which he served were pleased with him.» Another man expressed his belief that Mulki's replacement will not be able to change the situation in the country. «I think that a new nomination will not bring any significant effect. If there is no fundamental and qualitative change, the effect will be weak,» he said. «If there is no fundamental solution for the economic situation in the country — whoever it is [in power], Al-Mulki or anybody else — the problems will remain,» said another. Protesters have taken to the streets of Jordan in recent days to protest against planned taxi increases, and austerity policies.
