BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Central Elections Commission said Sunday that all Palestinian residents of Jerusalem will be automatically added to the voter roll due to their inability to open registration booths in the city.

Israel captured East Jerusalem in 1967 and later annexed the territory, in a move never recognized internationally. Palestinian residents were given special permits to remain in the city without Israeli citizenship.

The commission said it could not open registration centers in Jerusalem and so all Jerusalem ID holders can participate in elections without registering. The CEC updated voter rolls in the West Bank and Gaza Strip this week.

Any Jerusalem residents wishing to register are welcome to do so in seam towns Al-Ram and Abu Dis, which are under Palestinian control and so could open voter centers, the CEC said.
