Damascus-based Palestinian factions on Saturday rejected Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' decision to call early presidential and parliamentary elections, calling it illegal. "The factions confirm their oppositions to the call to hold early parliamentary elections because there is no justification for it and it is illegal and lacks real Palestinian consensus," said a statement read by Maher Taher, a leader of the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The statement called for renewed talks on forming a national unity government and for an independent investigation into the shooting attack on Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Thursday.
