Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas has called for the first national Palestinian elections in fifteen years to be held this summer.

The elections will be held in three phases, starting with PA legislative elections on May 22, followed by presidential elections and July 31, and culminating in elections for the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) long dormant parliament in exile, the Palestine National Council, on August 31.

While many see the elections as an opportunity to revive Palestinian political life, others see them as a means of masking an ongoing process of political decay.
