Palestinian Deputies Call For Elections

Municipal elections this year, Presidential and general elections next year. A member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Hanan Ashrawi, said a legislative committee had recommended that the current Palestinian cabinet remain in office for another 45 days and then yield to a new 19-member cabinet, reduced from the current 34 ministers appointed by Mr Arafat.

The resolution also called for a four-year term limit for the heads of the various security services, to prevent them from "interfering in politics and from having contacts with the Israeli side without the consent of the Palestinian political leadership".
