Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with the Central Election Commission in Ramallah to discuss legal steps and logistics for holding the elections.


Dr. Hanna Nasser chair of the commission that they need at least four months to prepare for elections.

Dr. Nasser added that if there are any objections against holding the elections they have to go to court.

Abbas has called on Saturday in a speech to the nation for holding early presidential and legislative elections in the Palestinian lands.

Dr. Nasser said that Abbas decision is not yet an official Presidential Decree.

Abbas' call for early elections sparked clashes between Hamas and Fatah, the two main Palestinian political factions.

Few have been killed and several injured in these clashes.
