Jordan's king says new government must review entire tax system

AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordan’s king said on Tuesday the new government must conduct a full review of the country’s tax system and launch a dialogue over a planned income tax law, which has sparked the country’s biggest protests in years.

King Abdullah appointed Omar al-Razzaz to form a new government, according to a palace statement, after Hani Mulki resigned as prime minister in a bid to defuse public anger over price hikes.
