Jordanian Prime Minister, Samir Rifai, issued an official statement declaring Tuesday, December 7, 2010, as an official non-working public holiday on the occasion of the upcoming Islamic New Year 1432 AH.

Although, almost 4 years ago (2007-02-16), Jordan's Prime Minister, Marouf Bakhit, had listed official holidays (religious and national) during which public institutions and ministries would remain closed, for the period from 2007-2011, this initial list of dates was soon amended (2008-01-04) meaning that a last-minute confirmation of Jordanian religious public holidays is always required.
