The Islamic Jihad Movement said on Monday that it had decided yet on participating in the Palestinian Legislative elections, and that the movement might join the PLO after it is reformed.

Mohammad Al-Hindi, a senior leader of the Islamic Jihad, said that the movement urges the residents to register in order to guarantee their voting rights, and added that the movement did not participate at the municipal elections for procedural purposes and not because it apposes the elections.

Al-Hindi added that the residents should take into consideration the national and political interests of the Palestinian people especially in the coming crucial period.

Commenting on the relations between the Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian factions, Al-Hindi said that the national interests of the Palestinians require unity of all factions, and that the Palestinian cause had its global economical, social and military effects.

“The central and fundamental issue for the Arab and Islamic world should be the Palestinian cause”, Al-Hindi reported.
