: about two to three years before Jordanians
: can elect their own prime minister. But the
: pace of political development has been
: moving fast in the Arab world within the
: last year. He may not have the luxury of
: waiting so long. For him and his peers, the
: time to act may be a lot sooner than they
: Indeed. The King is right that the
: transition from dictatorship to genuine
: liberal democracy is is a rough one and is
: most likely to succeed if done gradually.
: Unfortunately, HM has been talking the talk
: for years and has not taken action in the
: first twelve years of his reign. History
: may be passing him by. If he wishes his son
: ever to sit on his throne, 2-3 years may be
: too long to wait.
