A majority of Palestinians believed it was necessary to resume negotiations with Israel prior to heading the United Nations for unilateral state recognition, a poll conducted by Palestinian Center for Public Opinion revealed on Tuesday.

According to the poll, which was reported by Palestinian news channel Ma'an, 59.3 percent supported jump-starting the peace process prior to the UN bid, while only 35% supported unilateral recognition of Palestine without a peace accord with Israel.

52.7% of respondents, however, opposed removing the Palestinian state bid at the UN, and 50% said they would oppose peaceful demonstrations following the UN vote.

The poll covered a random sampling of 1,000 Palestinians in the West Bank, east Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.
