PLO Calls for Boycott of Israeli Elections in Jerusalem

Decrease font sizeIncrease font size   modify font size Print a copy


RAMALLAH, October 8, 2013 (WAFA) – The Arab Affairs Department of the Palestine Liberation Organization called in a statement on Tuesday for a boycott of Israeli municipal elections in occupied Jerusalem.

It said no Palestinian from East Jerusalem should participate in these elections either by voting or running for a seat.

The PLO said the municipality supports settlements in East Jerusalem and turning it into a Jewish city, “which is a national and political issue and not an issue of providing services.”

It said calls to take part in these elections would reinforce the occupation and its “expansionist policy” in the occupied city.

It said Jerusalem is an occupied city since 1967 and therefore no Israeli law should be applied to it as per international laws and conventions.

“Participating in these elections will be considered normalization with the Israeli occupation authority, which means legitimizing the annexation of Jerusalem,” said the statement.

Palestinians have regularly boycotted these elections, which this year are planned for October 22, since the occupation of their city in 1967 and its annexation shortly after.

While Palestinians in Jerusalem carry Israeli identity cards similar to the ones held by Israelis and can vote in municipal elections in the city, they nevertheless cannot vote in legislative elections because they are considered “residents” but not “citizens” of Israel.
