  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

Successive governments have failed to satisfy opposition demands for political reform. Abdullah Ensour kept the post of prime minister following the January 2013 election. As King Abdullah II (who still has a say on government appointments) is likely to initiate only modest changes, The Economist Intelligence Unit does not expect the government to bring in sweeping reforms.

The opposition Islamic Action Front (the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood) will lead calls for reform, alongside left-wingers and youth groups. However, the government is unlikely to mimic the crackdown on the movement that has been under way in Egypt.

The king's pro-Western foreign policy will continue to cause political tensions. The instability in Iraq-and, in particular, the recent territorial gains made by an extreme jihadi group, the Islamic State-poses a major security challenge, as does the civil war in Syria and the continuing influx of refugees.
