AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordan’s King Abdullah swore in a reformist government on Saturday, an administration that will be required to speed up economic and political reforms, officials said.

The cabinet lineup was confirmed after nearly three weeks of unprecedented consultations with civic society leaders and parliament by Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour, an economist educated in the United States and France.
