First off what kind of democracy is King Abdullah II thinking of? A democratic republic or an actual democracy? Either one I think will work, but a republic seems more practical for Jordan’s situation. I think King Abdullah II will succeed in turning Jordan into any type of democracy. He himself seems to be competent and the kind of person that thinks and plans everything. The way things work in Jordan is different from what its surrounding countries seem to be doing. People change the constitution the hold elections restricting the power of the king, which a transition into democracy. King Abdullah II also has a gradual transition in mind which is better than a sudden change. It eases the process and gives people time to change and reform things and to get used to the end government slowly and without panic. King Abdullah II may run into some troubles, but I believe he will succeed in his task.
