PA to update Palestinian registry, include East Jlem

Dec. 29, 2010 11:50 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 29, 2010 8:46 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian government officials in Ramallah announced Tuesday a plan to update the Palestinian Authority's National Registry, and upgrade the database to an electronic model.

The decision, announced during the PA's weekly cabinet meeting, was ratified based on the recommendations of the National Committee to update the registrar.

Once complete, the new registry will include the residents of East Jerusalem, a cabinet statement said.

Officials said the updating of the registry was part of the ongoing effort of the PA to prepare the Palestinian government to assume the responsibilities of statehood.
