The Cabinet of Jordan is led by the Prime Minister who is appointed by the King. The Prime Minister is then free to form his own cabinet which is responsible to the Chamber of Deputies on matters of general policy and can be forced to resign by a two-thirds vote of "no confidence" by that body or be dismissed by the King.

On 12 October 2020, a royal decree by King Abdullah II approved of Bisher Al-Khasawneh's Cabinet and was sworn in.
