Head of the political bureau pf Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, said on Sunday that the Palestinian Authority [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas approved presidential and legislative elections.
According to a Jerusalem Post report, Haniyeh said that he has met with the chairman of the Palestinian Central Elections Commission [CEC] Hanna Nasir, who updated him of Abbas’s approval.
The Hamas official also revealed that the two discussed the guidelines and details of the electoral process, which Haniyeh described as “real reconciliation.”
In a separate report, Director of the CEC Hisham Kahil told PA-run Palestine Radio that the Palestinian Authority president would soon pave the way to legislative elections in February by issuing a decree to formalize the process.
Soon afterwards, the PA is expected to hold presidential elections, Kahil said.
