December 2007, the caretaker cabinet in Ramallah completed a draft for a political parties’ law.
According to Vlad Pran Ifes Country director in the West Bank and Gaza: «The 2007 Political Parties Law was drafted and endorsed by the Council of Ministers (the Government) in December 2007. However, the reaction of political parties and civil society was negative. They criticized the draft as incomplete, politically motivated and targeted against Hamas. The Government gave up on the law before it was signed by the President. It is unclear if the Government plans to revise the draft and reinitiate the enactment process.»
