In the last few days, Abdullah has made promises to give up his right to appoint prime minister and cabinets - but only after six months of protests.
His country consists of lots of splinter parties, rather like in the Weimar Republic.
But he hasn't given any indication WHEN he will sort out this mess.

The king's two speeches in the last few days on this subject:

Sunday
‘No one in Jordan has a monopoly on reform’ | Jordan Times

yesterday
Jordan News Agency (Petra) |King opens national youth forum, urges youth involvement in public life

AMMAN, Jordan -- Assailants swinging clubs stormed into the Jordan office of the French news agency Wednesday, destroying furniture, in a rare attack on the international media in the kingdom.
......
Like other international media, Agence France Presse reported initial security accounts Monday that Tafila youth pelted Abdullah's motorcade with stones. But officials and Tafila residents quickly clarified that the stones targeted police for their rough handling of citizens during the king's visit, not Abdullah.
Tuesday's protesters outside AFP's office accused the agency of distorting the hospitality of Bedouin tribesmen -- who are traditional supporters of the monarch -- to falsely portray popular disenchantment with the king.

it's quit annoying situation wich the attack against the AP offices make it look worst.
I know that the agency should in the fisrt place make it sure to know if the attack was against the king or only disagreement with his riot (this is where the whole problem start I guess)their act was unprofessional IMO.however the attack against theie office was a bad move too that could badly end.

Hundred of people demonstrated on Wednesday in front of the office of the AFP in Amman, demanding AFP director Randa Habib to be sued after the publication of information on an attack against the convoy of King Abdullah II denied by the authorities.
