GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The head of the Palestinian independents forum, Yasser al-Wadiyeh, called Thursday for a "popular revolution" to end the division and complete reconciliation once and for all.
Al-Wadiyeh called for re-activating the elections commission's work and scheduling a date for presidential elections simultaneously with a vote for the Palestinian National Council.
Elections should not be held more than a year later than the unity deal, he said. The reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas was signed in May 2011.
The official said that the Palestinian people are suffering from the division, while their enemies gain.
