On October 3rd the PA high court issued a further decision.

“The Palestinian Authority’s high court on Monday ordered municipal elections to be held only in the West Bank and not in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, though a new date for the suspended polls was not set. […]

“The court orders the implementation of the government’s decision on the holding of local elections,” court president Hisham al-Hatoo ruled before a packed courtroom in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

He said however the judiciary in Gaza did not have necessary “guarantees” in place for the holding of the polls.”
