BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath insisted Wednesday that the Palestinian government would not interfere in upcoming Jordanian elections, after a party official declared public support for candidates.

Fatah secretary in Jordan Najeeb al-Kaddoumi threw his weight behind one electoral list for the Jan. 23 parliamentary vote, causing consternation in Jordanian political circles.

Shaath said it was not the government's policy to interfere in another state's internal affairs.

Recent meetings between President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordanian political leaders are not related to the elections, but just standard briefings considering the strong ties between the countries, the official noted.

Jordan's King Abdullah was the first head of state to visit the West Bank after the UN voted to admit Palestine as a non-member state in November.
