Khreisha: Political regime in West Bank exerts no effort to free MPs
MP Dr Hasan Khreisha has charged that the political system in the West Bank made a little effort to help release the MPs held in Israeli occupation authority (IOA) prisons for more than three years.
Khreisha, who is the second deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), said in a press release that former PA chief Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian negotiators have not given weight to the issue of MP detainees, confirming the absence of this issue from the agenda of talks with the IOA.
He voiced concern that a number of parties had contributed to the paralysis of the PLC, underscoring that the PLC had become part of the internal Palestinian political crisis and would not be reactivated unless a solution was reached on ending the current discord.
