Jordan’s King Abdullah appointed Omar al-Razzaz to form a new government, a palace statement said on Tuesday, after Hani Mulki resigned as prime minister in a bid to defuse major protests over price hikes.

Razzaz, a former World Bank economist, served as education minister in the outgoing government.

Plans to raise taxes have brought thousands of people onto the streets since last week in Jordan’s largest protests in years.
