BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian National Fund has not yet transferred September's monthly allowances to PLO factions, secretary-general of the Palestinian People’s Party said Monday.
Bassam al-Salihi told Ma'an that the delay in allowances may be related to the participation of some factions in recent protests over the Palestinian Authority's financial policies.
The PPP was involved in the protests, al-Salihi said, adding that his party will continue to demand a reduction in VAT on basic commodities.
The PPP leader said he hopes the delay in allowances will be solved soon.
Political factions in the PLO receive a monthly allowance from the Palestinian Authority's Palestinian National Fund for expenses.
