Fatah leader Muhammad Al-Madani said Wednesday that the party was ready for local, presidential and legislative elections whenever Palestinian factions agree to hold them.

Al-Madani said in a statement that Fatah members met and discussed the elections and whether they are ready for this step. The members agreed on some essential points during their meeting, he said.

The caretaker Palestinian Authority decided Tuesday to delay municipal elections until October 22. The elections had been planned for July, but were postponed on the recommendation of the Central Elections Committee.
