King PlayStation and reform

Basim sent me this:  "Jordan's King Abdullah II blamed his resigning prime minister Thursday for failing to push hard enough for reforms, reflecting frustration on all sides over demands for power-sharing and fair representation in parliament.  In a letter to Awn al-Khasawneh, Abdullah complained that "achievements so far are far less than what is required and way below what we expected."

Yeah, the prime minister is in charge of pushing reforms. The King is a mere bystander and it's just a ceremonial position anyway."
