RAMALLAH, Saturday, April 17, 2021 (WAFA) – Elections in occupied East Jerusalem as well as the elections in general planned for May 22 will be discussed when the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) meets tomorrow in Ramallah chaired by President Mahmoud Abbas, today said a PLO official.

Wasel Abu Yousef, member of the Executive Committee, told the official Voice of Palestinian radio that the Executive Committee is going to meet tomorrow at the presidential headquarter in Ramallah to discuss a number of issues including elections and the importance of holding them in occupied Jerusalem by voting and running as candidates.

"The meeting is going to discuss the contacts made to allow our people in the holy city to have the right to vote," he said, stressing "we cannot accept or go along with the ‘deal of the century’ on the exclusion of Jerusalem and not allowing Palestinians in the city to take part in the elections." The meeting will also discuss contacts with members of the international community regarding the convening of an international peace conference to end the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian land, the establishment of the independent Palestinian state and the right of return for Palestine refugees.
