Gaza - Jenin - Ma'an - Seven Palestinian factions have called for a new "practical and realistic" political program based on the National Accord Document in order to overcome what they call the monopolization of Palestinian politics by Hamas and Fatah.


In a statement issued on Wednesday, the factions called for the rebuilding of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the institutions of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on the basis of democratic elections and according to proportional representation from inside the occupied Palestinian territories and from the Diaspora.


The seven factions are the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), the Palestinian People's Party (PPP), the Palestinian National Initiative (PNI), the Palestinian Democratic Union (FIDA), the Arab Liberation Front (ALF), the Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF) and the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF).
