Hundreds of Jordanians have staged a protest against their new prime minister Marouf al-Bakhit

Hundreds of Jordanians have staged a protest against their new prime minister Marouf al-Bakhit, who was named earlier this week in response to anti-government marches.

The leader of Jordan’s main Muslim opposition group has said he wanted to give the new prime minister a chance to form his cabinet.

However, more than 1,000 of his followers and other government opponents marched in the capital Amman, calling for Marouf al-Bakhit to quit.

Islamist and leftist activists are protesting near the prime minister’s office and in central Amman, chanting: “Down with the government.”

Jordan has been the scene of several large protests against rising prices in recent weeks.
