This study deals with the constitutional oversight over the legislative acts, which are issued by the executive authority pursuant to the Jordanian Constitution. The study will shed the light on the nature of legal rules enacted by the Cabinet, with the approval of the King, and what extent they are subject to oversight by the Constitutional court. The legislation issued by the Executive authority are called regulations, which are of various types: independent, executive and legislative (Temporary Laws), in addition to the administrative instructions that are passed in normal circumstances. Defense orders are also legal rules issued by the Prime Minister to issue to face exceptional emergency circumstances in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. This study concludes that the constitutional oversight over the executive authority legal rules is limited to regulations only, without the written instructions and defense orders issued in accordance with the Defense Law.
