Abbas says situation in PA's territories stable

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that situation in PA-controlled territories was stable, and that he does not fear the recent uprisings spreading throughout the Arab world, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.
Abbas told Arabic-language daily Al Sharq Al Awsat that the PA is the only government in the Arab world to allow its citizens to protest.
General elections will not take place until September, Abbas added, because of the persisting split between Hamas and Fatah.
