Brazil to Send Observers to Palestinian Elections

At the invitation of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), Brazil is going to send observers to the Palestinian parliamentary elections to take place on January 25.

According to information released today by the Itamaraty, the Brazilian foreign office, the mission will be formed by representatives of the Brazilian Electoral Justice, of National Congress, of the Ministry of Foreign Relations and of the Arab-Brazilian Community.

In January last year, Brazil sent observers to follow the Palestinian presidential elections, won by Mahmoud Abbas. The mission was headed by the president of the Federal Electoral Court at the time, Sepúlveda Pertence.
