The Palestinian Authority’s High Court of Justice on Monday cancelled the PA government’s decision to postpone municipal elections that were supposed to be held on July 17, 2010.

The court ruled that the decision to cancel the vote was in violation of Article 10 of the 2005 law and undermined democratic foundations.

The court ruled that holding elections was a democratic right that does not threaten security and peace as the PA had claimed.
