West Bankers vote in Palestinian municipal elections
Issued on: Modified:
Voters in the West Bank went to the polls this weekend, for the first time since 2006, in Palestinian municipal elections. In Gaza, voters observed a boycott, called by Hamas, the Islamist party. In East Jerusalem, people were unable to vote because the territory lies behind the separation wall constructed by Israel in 2002. So RFI visited the West Bank to find out about the main political issues for the people living there.
