Erekat: 'Decision to dissolve PLC goes in line with transition to statehood'

Dec. 23, 2018 1:37 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 24, 2018 4:39 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) Executive Committee, Saeb Erekat, said on Sunday that the Palestinian Constitutional Court’s recent decision that dissolved the Palestine Legislative Council (PLC) "goes hand in hand with efforts of transition from the period of the Palestinian Authority to into the State of Palestine period."

Erekat told Voice of Palestine radio that “the Palestinian Central Council formed a supreme committee preparing to move to the stage of statehood by determining the relationship with Israel, the United States and Hamas.”

He called for holding general elections for a constituent assembly of the State of Palestine, as well as presidential elections, especially at a time that Palestine has become a legal figure in the United Nations.

Erekat also called for changing the status quo and for achieving national reconciliation to “thwart the 'Deal of the Century,'” which seeks to establish a state in Gaza, and self-rule in the West Bank.
