  • Layal Fayez Essoh Master, Political Science, Jordanian University, Jordan


This study aims to analyze all causes or obstacles facing local municipalities, by studying the negative causes and challenges facing them, and doing a partial study of local municipalities in the various regions of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. This is done through knowing the challenges and difficulties facing the municipalities in general and knowing the municipality's ability to face these challenges and difficulties, within the capabilities available to them, and knowing its role in achieving development in these areas affiliated to it and its impact on gaining the trust of citizens. In order to achieve this confidence for citizens, it is necessary to achieve the desired goals and services provided by the municipality, and to know the gap in municipal decisions between government institutions and ministries and the impact of this on the opinion of citizens.
