PA refuses to give money to any Palestinian factions who oppose Fatah and their "exclusive decision-making power"

Headline: “Exclusive: PLO factions respond to Sanad News about the cessation of their budgeting”

 

 

 

“Palestinian factions confirmed that they are boycotting the [PLO] Executive Committee meeting that is supposed to be held tomorrow, Monday [Oct. 18, 2021], in response to the stopping of their budgeting for this the fourth consecutive month.

The Popular Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] (PFLP), the Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] (DFLP), and the [Palestinian] People’s Party announced in a joint statement that the PA has stopped their budgeting for this the fourth consecutive month.

 

The PFLP confirmed that it has not participated in the Executive Committee meetings since the [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) in 2018 and the establishment of an Executive Committee without there being agreement…

 

[PFLP] Central Committee member Muhammad Touman told the [independent Palestinian] news agency Sanad News: ‘From that time on, the PFLP has not participated in a single Executive Committee meeting, because since then the decision-making there is being carried out exclusively and individually [by Fatah].’

 

Touman said that ‘stopping the budgeting is a crime that is being committed against the PFLP for the past three years.’ He added: ‘There are those who are attempting to exploit this card without any right, in an unpatriotic manner that we are not used to on the national level.’”
