MAKKAH, (PIC)– Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council, has denied a news report that the PLC would convene a session in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Monday.

Bahar, who is currently in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, to perform Haj, said in a press release on Sunday that the PLC is inoperative in the West Bank and its premises are closed before speaker Dr. Aziz Dweik and Hamas lawmakers for the past three years at the orders of Fatah the de facto ruler of the West Bank, which disclaim authenticity of such reports.

He explained that the PLC chairmanship did not call for a special session, as guaranteed by its legal and constitutional jurisdictions, on Monday, which means that any call in this regard would be legally and constitutionally null and void.

Bahar said that the aforementioned session is held by what is called parliamentary work groups, which are illegally convening with all PLC doors opened before them while Dr. Dweik and other Hamas members are denied entry by force.

The deputy speaker urged Fatah to restore parliamentary life in the West Bank and to stop prosecuting Islamic deputies and their families.
