Palestinians cancel local elections....
Could it be because Fatah is not very popular???
Palestinian lawmakers and party officials gathered outside the Palestinian Legislative Council headquarters in Ramallah to protest the Palestinian Authority's deferral of local elections originally scheduled for Saturday.
PLC member Qais Abed Al-Karim, who heads the legislative body's social affairs committee, said the PA's decision was "illegitimate and contradicts Palestinian Basic Laws and the urgent need to put an end to the deterioration of the pillars of Palestinian community caused by the West Bank-Gaza division."
