Jordan's King Abdullah II appointed a veteran independent politician on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012, as his new caretaker prime minister ahead of parliamentary elections the last time he will make such an appointment according to his own reform plan. The appointment of Ensour is part of the king's political roadmap that addresses popular pressure for a broader role in decision-making. (AP Photo)
