Jordan's prime minister designate Awn Khasawneh will hold talks with the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood this week in attempts to include them in his new governing coalition, AFP reported Wednesday.

Islamic Action Front chief Hamzeh Mansour told AFP that his group was waiting to determine whether it would join Jordan's new reform-mandated government after Khasawneh announces its composition.

Khasawneh was in talks with the opposition and is expected to announce Amman's new government to King Abdullah II this weekend, AFP reported.
