PFLP: We will not allow the PNC to convene in the West Bank
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) has expressed its rejection of any attempt by the Palestinian Authority leadership to convene a meeting for the Palestinian National Council (PNC) in Ramallah under Israel’s hegemony.
This came in a speech delivered by senior PFLP official Jamil Mazhar during a ceremony organized on Saturday in the Gaza Strip to mark the party’s inception anniversary.
Zayed said the PFLP “rejects the use of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as a tool or farm to serve the desires of a particular party or person,” affirming it would not allow a PNC meeting in the West Bank.
He called for holding a PNC session abroad.
In another context, Mazhar welcomed the Egyptian invitation for the Palestinian factions to hold comprehensive national talks in Cairo to heal the rift in the Palestinian arena.
The PFLP official also affirmed his party’s rejection of the French peace initiative, calling it an attempt to liquidate the Palestinian people’s national cause and rights, calling on the Palestinian Authority to repudiate it.
The Palestinian National Council (PNC) is the legislative body and the highest authority of the PLO, and it is responsible for formulating its policies and programs.
It serves as the parliament for all Palestinians inside and outside the occupied Palestinian territories and represents all sectors of the Palestinian community worldwide, including political parties, popular organizations, and resistance movements.
