King of Jordan extinguishes fires ignited by fuel prices

Jordan's King Abdullah II ordered a halt to the government's decision to raise fuel prices after a wide-ranging protest to refuse to raise prices.

An official statement said that "under the guidance of His Majesty the King, Prime Minister Dr. Hani Al-Mulqi, the Ministers of Industry, Trade, Supply, Finance, Energy and Mineral Resources, held a meeting of the Committee on the pricing of oil derivatives and directed to stop the decision to amend the fuel tariffs for the month of June and adopted by the Committee on the pricing of fuel, Million dinars and the suspension of the decision of the Committee for this month. "

The Jordanian government's decision to raise fuel and electricity prices angered Jordanians, hundreds of whom took to the streets, demanding the government be toppled.

The government raised the prices of essential fuels (gasoline, diesel and kerosene) by between 4.7 percent and 5.5 percent.
