His Majesty King Abdullah II tasked Bisher Khasawneh with forming the new Council of Ministers on Wednesday.

The announcement came after the resignation of Former Prime Minister, Omar al-Razzaz, on Saturday, following His Majesty's decision to dissolve the House of Representatives on September 27.

Razzaz remained part of the caretaker government until King Abdullah II appointed Khasawneh as his successor.

Khasawneh will oversee the upcoming parliamentary elections in November.

The Royal Hashemite Court tweeted the announcement as follows: "His Majesty King Abdullah II tasks Bisher Khasawneh with forming a new Cabinet"
