The Islamic Action Front, Jordan's most prominent opposition party, announced on Monday (January 31st) that it has opened a dialogue with the government, wire services reported.
The group presented its demands in a letter to Prime Minister Samir Rifai, said Zaki Bani Rsheid, a member of the IAF executive council.
"These demands include the resignation of the government, amendment of the electoral law and an elected prime minister," he said. King Abdullah II understands the people’s message, said Hamzeh Mansour, head of the IAF. "We now hope he will act quickly," Mansour added.
The king is expected to meet with a delegation from the party. Jordan's constitution allows the king to appoint and dismiss prime ministers.
Demonstrations have been held in Jordan for three consecutive Fridays as participants are demanding economic and political reforms.
