Supreme-court-decides-to-hold-local-elections-in-West-Bank-call-them-off-in-GazaLawyer Tony Salman told PNN that the court decided to go on with the elections in the West Bank because of its legitimacy, adding that the voting will take place during the next four weeks.

About a month ago, the Central Elections Commission (CEC) received a Supreme Court decision to temporarily halt the Cabinet’s decision to hold local elections until the Court decides on the case raised before it.

In an official statement, CEC said that the elections stopped “despite CECs’continuous efforts to provide a valid and appropriate electoral environment that enables the holding of transparent elections that meet the respect of the Palestinian people and contribute to end the internal political division.”
