The Central Elections Commission in Palestine has resumed today, updating electoral records in preparation for local elections to be held in October 2016 in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, The Central Elections Commission said, “Registration process and updating electoral records will continue for five days at the same centers used by the Commission previously, where the general elections were held.”

The Commission has called on Palestinian citizens to update their records based on their place of residence. The Commission called on those who changed their domicile and those born in 1997-8 to update their records as well.

The Commission said records could be updated online via its official website.

A few days earlier, the Commission started its awareness campaign and met with various factions in Gaza. The meeting resulted in signing a document of honor to respect the results of the local elections.
