Palestinian faction meeting in Cairo on elections delayed

A Palestinian faction meeting intended to take place this week in Cairo to hash out issues relating to Palestinian elections has been delayed, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh announces.

While Palestinian Central Elections Commissioner Hana Naser had previously announced that the meeting between Fatah, Hamas, and other Palestinian groups would take place in the coming week, Shtayyeh tells the cabinet that it won’t happen until early next month.
