The Jordanian Cabinet announced that next Saturday, May 25, 2019, will be a public holiday on the occasion of Independence Day, which is usually observed on the 25th of May each year.

All ministries, official departments, and public institutions will be off that day.

Independence Day is the National Holiday of Jordan and is celebrated annually on 25 May.

Known as "Eid al-Istiklaal," the holiday marks the independence of Jordan on May 25, 1946, when British control ended and Jordan was declared a Kingdom.
