Dominic Raab – 2021 Comments on the Palestinian Elections

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, on 30 April 2021.

It is disappointing that elections in the Occupied Palestinian Territories have been postponed.

The Palestinian people should be allowed to enjoy their democratic rights – and Israel must allow voting for Palestinians in East Jerusalem, in line with the Oslo Accords. Elections are long overdue and I urge the swift setting of a new date.
