Lokalwahlen im Westjordanland

Im Westjordanland fanden am 26. März 2022 Lokalwahlen in den größten Städten und Gemeinden statt

Über 715.000 Palästinenserinnen und Palästinenser waren aufgerufen, ihre Gemeinderäte und Stadtparlamente zu wählen. Knapp 54 Prozent machten von ihrer Wahlmöglichkeit Gebrauch. Im Gaza-Streifen wurde hingegen aufgrund eines Boykotts der dort regierenden Hamas nicht gewählt. Die Wahlen im Westjordanland ließen nach langer Zeit einen Hauch von demokratischer Teilhabe erahnen. Sie täuschen jedoch nicht darüber hinweg, dass das politische System in den Palästinensischen Gebieten weiterhin autoritär geführt wird.
