Zaki al-Ghul (Arabic: زكي الغول; born 1927) is a Palestinian politician based in Jordan. Born in 1927 in Silwan neighbourhood, Jerusalem, he graduated from the Palestinian Institute of Law in 1948 and holds a doctorate from John F. Kennedy University in 2006.[1] Since 1999 he has served as the titular mayor of East Jerusalem. Due to the forced shutting down of all councils related to the East Jerusalem municipal services by Israeli forces, al-Ghul holds what constitutes a purely formal position or title without any practical or real authority.[2][3]
