Hamdallah: Elections must be held in East Jerusalem

June 4, 2014 3:49 P.M. (Updated: June 5, 2014 10:13 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian premier Rami Hamdallah on Wednesday urged the international community to pressure Israel to allow elections to take place in East Jerusalem.

On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a Knesset meeting that he would not allow the PLO to hold parliamentary or presidential ballots in East Jerusalem.

During a meeting with foreign representatives, Hamdallah said that "elections cannot be held without Jerusalem," and urged support for the electoral process.

President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday that new elections would be held within six months, after a Palestinian unity government was announced in Ramallah.

Directives would be issued to cabinet members and to the central elections commission in the coming days to start preparing for the election and a date will be agreed upon with the commission.
