Jordan Independence Day 2010

Appeared on Google Jordan

Jordan celebrates the anniversary of its independence on May 25th. The country gained its independence on this day in 1946 when the British Mandate over Jordan ended. King Abdullah I established the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and became the ruling monarch following independence.

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a constitutional monarchy with representative government. The monarch is the head of state, chief executive, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces. The king exercises his executive authority through the prime ministers and the Council of Ministers or Cabinet.

The Cabinet is responsible to the elected House of Deputies which, along with the House of Notables (Senate), constitutes the legislative branch of the government. The judicial branch is an independent branch of the government.

During Jordan’s Independence Day, universities and other educational institutions hold seminars and conferences on various topics related to the celebration. Churches hold special services. Freedom of religion is widely respected in Jordan and His Majesty, King Abdullah, is always represented in a mass service by the Greek Orthodox Church during a special holiday mass. At night, Amman’s sky lights up with a grand fireworks display.

We congratulate the people and government of Jordan led by Their Majesties, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, and H.E., Prime Minister Samir Rifai, and its Consulate in the Philippines headed by Consul Michael Alexander M. Ang, on the occasion of their Independence Day. We wish them success in all their endeavors.
