I'm really not sure if this is good news or bad news; King ‘Abdullah II of Jordan has agreed to a major demand of the opposition: a Parliamentary system under which the Prime Minister and Cabinet will be chosen by the elective Parliament, not by the King. That's been a major demand of protesters and is pretty much what defines a constitutional monarchy. He made the announcement, and the promise, but didn't set a time frame for fear of "chaos." That's the bad news part.
A few months ago, the Moroccan King made similar promises. OK, your majesties, if you're really the "enlightened" monarchs you want us to think you are, let's deliver on these promises. They're where you start, not where you finish.
