SHAFAQNA – The results of an opinion poll indicates that Jordanians have a positive view of kingdom’s new government led by Omar al-Razzaz.

The new government was appointed in June amid public protests at the country’s economic crisis.

The survey reported that 57 percent of Jordanians and 63 percent of opinion leaders in Jordan believe “things are heading in the right direction”, compared with 40 percent of citizens and 31 percent of prominent influencers who disagree.

Of those who thought the country was now going in the wrong direction, 28 percent said it was because of rising prices and living costs, 19 percent cited deteriorating conditions and 20 percent said corruption.

The survey was conducted by the Centre for Strategic Studies at the University of Jordan, Middle East Eye reported.
