AMMAN - Jordan's King Abdullah appointed respected politician Abdullah Ensour as Prime Minister on Wednesday to prepare for the country's first post Arab Spring parliamentary election, due by early next year, a palace statement said.

The monarch had dissolved Jordan's tribally dominated parliament last week, half-way through its four-year term, paving the way for the election that should be held within four months under constitutional reforms enacted last year.
