Jordan's King Abdullah accepts resignation of Prime Minister Omar al-Razzaz

AMMAN, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Jordan’s King Abdullah on Saturday accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Omar al Razzaz and asked him to stay on as a caretaker premier until he designates a successor, state media said.

The monarch dissolved parliament last Sunday at the end of its four-year term in a move that under constitutional rules meant the government must resign within a week.
