Foreign Secretary statement on Palestinian elections

A statement from the Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, on the postponement of elections in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

It is disappointing that elections in the Occupied Palestinian Territories have been postponed.

The Palestinian people should be allowed to enjoy their democratic rights – and Israel must allow voting for Palestinians in East Jerusalem, in line with the Oslo Accords. Elections are long overdue and I urge the swift setting of a new date.
