Fayez Tarawneh named Royal Court chief
Born in 1949, Tarawneh is an independent politician who has previously served twice as prime minister and once as Royal Court chief.
His first term as prime minister was from August 1998 to March 1999, after which he was appointed Royal Court chief.
He was reappointed to the premiership in May 2012, heading the government for five months before being replaced by incumbent Premier Abdullah Ensour in October.
On Monday, His Majesty King Abdullah sent a letter to Abu Karaki in which he reasserted his confidence in him and thanked him for his work.
"More than a year ago, I entrusted you with the presidency of the Royal Court... so that its doors would remain open to all citizens... and you were worthy of my trust," the King said in the letter.
