The Central Committee of Fatah Movement decided Tuesday to hold its seventh general conference on 29 November in Ramallah.
A unanimous decision was taken by Fatah’s senior body, the central committee, to convene the congress on November 29 in the West Bank city of Ramallah, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said in a statement issued on Tuesday.
The conference will be held in the presence of 1,300 elected members of Fatah Movement.
Members of Fatah, who do not reside in the occupied West Bank, will need to get Israeli approval to attend the meeting. Additionally, those living in the Gaza Strip will require special travel permits to exit the besieged enclave.
Fatah Movement, which is facing internal divisions, will hold its first general conference since 2009.
Analysts have said plans to hold the long overdue congress is a bid by Abbas to stave off rivals, mainly Mohammad Dahlan.
Dahlan was expelled from the party in 2011 and now lives in exile in the United Arab Emirates.
