Local election, 2004-2005

The Higher Committee for Local Elections (HCLE) was responsible for executing the first local elections. It divided the elections process into five rounds, four of which were completed. The fifth, however, was not carried out due to compelling circumstances. Following the passage of Local Council Elections Law No. (10) of 2005, specifically article 72, the responsibility for administering local elections was transferred to the CEC.

 

1. First Round

 The first round of local elections was held in 36 local authorities throughout Palestine. In the West Bank, this round was carried out on 23 December 2004 in 22 localities, while in the Gaza Strip the first round was held on 27 January 2005 in 14 localities. The seats were allocated according to the simple majority system (districts), as set forth by Local Council Elections Law No. (5) of 1996.
