Ahead of May and July votes, factions commit to respect results and to peaceful transfer of power afterward if necessary; memorandum also asserts PLO as the sole legitimate representative for the Palestinian people

The Palestinian Authority (PA) sent an official letter to the White House claiming that all factions, including Hamas, were committed to the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
 
The letter was delivered by Hussein Al-Sheikh, the PA’s Head of the General Authority of Civil Affairs, to U.S. President Joe Biden’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Israeli and Palestinian Affairs Hady Amr.
