GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fatah official Faisal Abu Shahal said Saturday that reconvening the Palestinian Legislative Council before Palestinian elections would delay political reconciliation.

The speaker of the defunct Palestinian parliament, Aziz Dweik, said Friday that the legislative body should resume work before any new national election.

The Palestinian Legislative Council has not sat since Hamas and Fatah violently split Palestine into separate governments in 2007.

Abu Shahal said in a statement that while the PLC is important, a transitional government should be implemented first.

"Lets implement what's already been agreed on -- there is no need for new discussions," he said.

The long-embattled reconciliation deal, signed in 2011, once again ground to a halt until a renewed push earlier this month.

I will mention this again because as of Monday February 4th my prediction in October that concilliation talks will not occur or bring the two sides together comes true. I am willing to give them another chance and predict by June 30th no conciliation will happen. that being said i say again. Why must they be as one. You have two parties for a 2 party system. Elect either one to govern both Gaza and West Bank. In four years hold another election. Just get it going because you look like losers now
