The story: "the commencement of real political reforms." The truth: "we don't have enough private jets for every member of the upper class." Prime Minister Samir Rifai has been replaced with Marouf Al-Bakhit, "(born 1947) was the Prime Minister of Jordan from November 27, 2005 until 25 November 2007. and was previously the Jordanian ambassador to Israel and the national security chief."  We fail to see the real political reform.

From Xinhua:

Jordanian Prime Minister Samir Rifai resigned on
Tuesday following weeks of protests by Jordanians calling on the
government to step down.

King Abdullah II of Jordan tasked Marouf Bakhit to form the new
government, state-run petra news agency reported. Bakhit, a former prime
minister, served also as Jordan's ambassador in Israel.
