Jordan is divided into eight administrative districts, or governorates, each headed by a governor appointed by the monarch. Three former governorates, comprising what is now the West Bank, were occupied by Israel in 1967; their administrative links with Jordan were severed by King Hussein I in 1988. Jordanís nomadic population is administered separately.
