AMMAN, Jordan 

Jordan will hold local elections on March 22, the country’s electoral commission said on Sunday.

In a statement, commission spokesman Jihad al-Momani said members of the municipal and provincial councils and Greater Amman Municipality will be elected during the vote.

In March, the Jordanian government decided to dissolve the local councils, including Greater Amman Municipality.

The kingdom’s last local polls were held in August 2017.
