Local EU statement on the holding of Palestinian local elections
“The EU Heads of Mission in Jerusalem and Ramallah welcome the Palestinian local elections held on 20 October and commend the work of the Palestinian Central Elections Commission.
The EU Missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah had the opportunity to visit polling stations across the West Bank. The elections were well organized and took place in a peaceful atmosphere. The EU considers the holding of elections as an important contribution to Palestinian state-building and looks forward to future elections across the occupied Palestinian territory.
The Norwegian Representative Office aligns itself with the above statement.”
