  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

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

The opposition Islamic Action Front (the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood) will lead calls for reform, alongside left-wingers and youth groups. Extremist elements will be suppressed, but more moderate elements will be co-opted into the political process.

The king will maintain a pro-Western foreign policy. The instability in Iraq, and, in particular, the recent territorial gains made by an extreme jihadi group, Islamic State (IS), poses a major security challenge to Jordan, as does the civil war in Syria and the continuing influx of refugees. Jordan is stepping up its air strikes against IS.
