The list of “Change and Reform” believes that its participation in the legislative elections now and under the reality of the Palestinian cause, comes within the comprehensive program of liberating Palestine, repatriating the Palestinian people and establishing their independent state whose capital is Jerusalem. Such participation meant to be backing up and support the Intifada and resistance program assented by the Palestinian people as a strategic option to end the occupation.
The Change and Reform list works on establishing a civil developed Palestinian society based on political multiplicity, authority alternation and directing the Palestinian political system as well as its political and reform program to accomplish the national rights of the Palestinian people, taking into consideration the existence of the oppressive occupation and its odious burden placed on our land and people, as well as its flagrant intervention even in the details of the Palestinian life.
Our list brings forward its program as a kind of fidelity to our patient people who believe that such approach is the most effective alternative; and consider Hamas movement as being the promising hope for better future, God willing; they also deem such list as the sincere leadership for better future, God willing.
