Jordanian Prime Minister, Hani Mulqi, has issued a circular decreeing a non-working public holiday in Jordan on Thursday, September 21, 2017, to commemorate the upcoming annual Jordanian non-working public holiday for the Hijri New Year 1439.
The Jordanian government often (26-Apr-2017, 31-Oct-2013, 19-Apr-2013, 17-Jan-2013, 24-Apr-2012 and 25-Apr-2006), though not always (20-Oct-2014), moves mid-week public holidays to the nearest weekend, in particular the Labour Day non-working public holiday and the Hijri New Year public holiday to adjoin a nearby weekend.
Today's announcement, however, corresponds to the date of the non-working public holiday for the Hijri New Year 1439 as per the list of official non-working public holidays in Jordan for the calendar year 2017, which was announced last autumn (15-Oct-2016).
