Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qasem reiterated that his movement had showed “great” flexibility towards Palestinian elections.

In a press statement, Qasem pointed out that Hamas “has no problem about sending a written letter about its vision towards holding Palestinian elections.”

Qasem added that Hanna Nasser, head of the Central Election Commission, had asked for a written response from Hamas about its position towards Palestinian elections at the request of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. 

The Hamas spokesperson reaffirmed the necessity for the election results respected by all sides and national institutions and factions.

To ensure a true and fair election process, Qasem urged the PA to guarantee the freedom of expression, press, and movement and the right of free speech for Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
