RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A second round of voting will take place in the West Bank on Saturday in municipalities that did not take part in earlier local elections.

Some 78 municipalities failed to field any candidates for the elections, and after a second registration, 20 districts remained without candidates. In other municipalities only one list was nominated.

In contested municipalities, voting will take place on Saturday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. in 24 voting centers, the Palestinian Central Elections Commission said.
