In a poll conducted by the An Najah National University Center for Opinion Polls and Survey Studies, 61,1 % of the respondents supported dissolving the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC). 29,6 % rejected the idea.
Respondents were, however, not in favor of holding elections at the (unspecified) end of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ term. Only 20,1 % supported elections, whereas 77,5 % rejected the idea.
Were elections to be held, voter turnout would still be relatively high with 76,9 % stating that they would participate in a presidential election, and 78,1 % said they would participate in legislative elections.
The poll was conducted between 18-20 September.
