Badran Appointed Prime Minister

Adnan Badran, former Deputy Director General of UNESCO, Paris, France, and Vice President of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS), has been named Prime Minister of Jordan. King Abdullah made the announcement on 5 April. Badran, who has visited ICTP and TWAS on numerous occasions, held the position of President of Philadelphia University, Amman, Jordan, prior to his appointment. He has also served as Minister of Agriculture, Minister of Education and Secretary General of Jordan’s Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCST).
News from ICTP published an extensive interview with him in 1998, just after Badran was in Trieste to participate in the Abdus Salam Memorial Meeting.
