Jordanian cabinet receives "vote of confidence"

I asked a Jordanian journalist: has there ever been a cabinet presented by the King which did not receive the vote of confidence from the empty parliament? She said: only, one, the Samir Rifa`i cabinet in 1963, when the King quickly dissolved parliament and arrested MPs, and returned MPs to West Bank.

PS Now that kind of autocracy does not bother US democratic lovers.
