Hamas rejects municipal elections in Gaza

Hamas has refused to allow the second phase of the Palestinian municipal elections, scheduled for March 26, to be held in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas and other Palestinian groups have criticized the Palestinian Authority for splitting the municipal elections into two phases.

A PA official in Ramallah accused Hamas of “obstructing” the municipal elections for the second time. Hamas’s boycott of the elections would deepen divisions among the Palestinians and solidify the split between the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the official warned.
