The #Palestinian people need local elections that can be organised both in #WestBank & #Gaza


onehomeToday, it was announced that the Palestinian Government has decided to postpone local elections. I welcome this decision. It is in the national interest of the Palestinian people that when such elections take place, they be organised both in the West Bank and Gaza.

All Palestinian bodies should work together in good faith to overcome internal divisions and uphold democracy.

Local elections, conducted in line with established international standards, must contribute to advancing Palestinian reconciliation based on PLO principles as well as to ending the occupation and establishing a democratic, unified Palestinian state as part of a negotiated two-state solution.
