Palestinian Public Opinion Polls No. 41
MetadataShow full item record
After ending a round of proximity talks directed by the American senator, George Mitchell, the United States called for holding direct talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis under American patronage. Direct talks face a group of stipulations set by both sides (the Israelis and the Palestinians). The Palestinian Government announced postponing local councils’ elections, which were scheduled to take place during this summer, without assigning a date for conducting them. The state of division between the West Bank and Gaza still persists; each side continues to adhere to their convictions and there are no signs for an imminent reconciliation nor are there mediations to end the division.
