Fatah official Mahmoud Al Aloul told Fatah supporters in Ramllah Wednesday that the party supports Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas running for another term, AFP in Arabic reported.

"There will be presidential, legislative and parliamentary elections," Al Aloul said, adding that the party hoped to see Abbas remain at the helm of the PA.

Palestinian factions met in Cairo last month to determine future Palestinian elections, which may take place in May of this year.

Abbas has not officially announced plans to run on the presidential ballot.
