The Jordanian cabinet of the government of Jordan has announced that Tuesday, August 15, 2017, had been declared a non-working public holiday in Jordan on account of that day's decentralized and municipal elections.

The Jordanian Government regularly declares (2013-09-09, 2013-08-22, 2013-01-17, 2007-11-13, 2007-08-22 and 2007-07-16) the date of elections as one-off national public holiday throughout Jordan to enable as many people as possible to participate in the nationwide elections.

This Sunday's announcement that Tuesday, August 15, 2017, had been declared a non-working public holiday in Jordan on account of that day's decentralized and municipal elections, thus amends the previously-released (2016-10-15), list of annual non-working bank holidays and public holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2017.
