Jordan Administration

Under the 1951 constitution (approved in 1952), Jordan is a limited monarchy.The Jordanian monarch is chief executive and head of state and shares executive power with a prime minister and other cabinet members who are responsible to the parliament. The monarch may declare war, conclude peace, and convene, adjourn, and suspend the lower house of the legislature.

Jordan is divided into eight administrative districts, or governorates, each headed by a governor appointed by the monarch. Three former governorates, comprising what is now the West Bank, were occupied by Israel in 1967; their administrative links with Jordan were severed by King Hussein in 1988. Jordan's nomadic population is administered separately.
