FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Palestinian Territories to hold first national election in 15 years” – below is their description.
After 15 years, Palestinians will go to the polls for a parliamentary election on May 22. The presidential vote will be held on July 31. Observers say this could pave the way for reconciliation between Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement – which controls the West Bank – and Hamas, who have authority over Gaza. This comes at a time when Palestinians in both areas are immensely disillusioned with their leaders. We speak to Omar Shaban, founder and director of the Gaza-based think tank PalThink for Strategic Studies.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
