Ashtiyeh calls on Europe to pressure Israel to hold elections in Jerusalem

 Prime Minister Mohammad Ashtiyeh on Wednesday called on European Union countries to press Israel to hold Palestinian elections in Jerusalem.

In a meeting with ambassadors, consuls and representatives of the European Union in Ramallah, Ashtiyeh urged the EU countries to be ready to contribute to the monitoring and supervision of the election process.

He stressed that the Palestinian people "have bright experiences in the elections, whether in the legislative and presidential elections in the past or in the elections of local councils and student councils and chambers of commerce that have not stopped in the West Bank for the past years."

"There is constant political will on the part of the Palestinian leadership to hold elections and overcome any challenges imposed by any party, because the democracy of the Palestinian people has been a victim of division," Ashtiyeh said.
