Foreign relations

The Constitution of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was adopted on January 11, 1952 and has been amended many times.[1] It defines the hereditary monarchic rule with a parliamentary system of representation. It stipulates the separated powers of the state (executive, legislative and judicial), the citizens’ rights and duties, financial affairs and other constitutional regulations.[2]

An Organic Law was promulgated in April 1928 for use under the British mandate. After Jordan gained full independence in May 1946, following the abolition of the British Mandate, a new constitution was formulated, published in the Official Gazette on February 1, 1947, and adopted by the Legislative Council on November 28, 1947. A few years later, the Constitution was liberalized by King Talal and ratified on January 1, 1952. It is generally regarded as liberal, although criticism may arise in regard to the great powers vested in the monarch.[2]
