Political writers and thinkers demand referendum before final status agreement
Palestine, Politics, 9/21/1999
Some Palestinian intellectuals called for a referendum before Palestinian President Yasser Arafat signs a comprehensive peace agreement with Israel.
Those thinkers and political writers held a conference in the Palestinian city of Ramallah.
Zyed Abu Omrah, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council who opposes Yasser Arafat's policy, said, "A referendum must be made in which all the Palestinians participate for the self-determination."
He added, "The people's future will not be left to one person, especially that the Palestinian people is starting to lose faith in him."
He opposed describing Arafat as a traitor, saying he wants to end the struggle and start a new time.
