Jordanian Public Holiday Moved To January 20
 
(Posted on Thursday, January 17, 2013)

Late last night, Jordanian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ensour, announced that the upcoming non-working public holiday in Jordan for Prophet Mohammad's birthday had been moved from Thursday, January 24, to Sunday, January 20, 2013.

The Jordanian government often (24-Apr-2012 and 25-Apr-2006, for example), though not systematically (27-Apr-2010 and 25-Apr-2005), moves mid-week public holidays to the nearest weekend, in particular the Labour Day non-working public holiday.

However, in this particular case, the reason for moving the upcoming non-working public holiday for Prophet Mohammad's birthday from Thursday, January 24, to Sunday, January 20, 2013, is due to the vote-counting to follow the upcoming January 23 elections in Jordan ("... because public sector staff entrusted with supervising the parliamentary elections slated for January 23 will be counting ballots on January 24").

It was additionally announced that Wednesday, January 23, 2013, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Jordan on account of these same parliamentary elections.
