Headline: "Abu Rudeineh: Holding elections in East Jerusalem is not negotiable"
"Holding elections by voting and running in occupied East Jerusalem is not negotiable or open for discussion, and there will be no elections without East Jerusalem, today said Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas.
He said in a statement that 'the position of President Abbas and the Palestinian leadership on the issue of Jerusalem and its holy places is what foiled the deal of the century, and it is also the one that thwarted the state with provisional borders. Without Jerusalem there will be no state, no peace and no stability for anyone.'
Abu Rudeineh stressed that 'Jerusalem was and will remain a red line for all the Palestinian people and no one will be allowed to cross it or to deal with the projects that aim to end the Palestinian cause.'"
