A senior Palestinian official in the Democratic Front to Liberate Palestine (DFLP) expected on Wednesday that the inter-Palestinian dialogue would resume in Cairo during the first week of October.
Saleh Zeidan said in a statement sent to reporters that the inter-Palestinian dialogue would be comprehensive, where all factions would join, adding it will start in the first week of October and will end before October 15.
"The comprehensive dialogue should end before October 15, and ar econciliation deal has to be signed by the Palestinian factions to end the status of rift among the Palestinians," said Zeidan.
Zeidan's statement was made, after he held talks with General Mohamed Ibrahim, a deputy to Egypt's intelligence chief Omer Suleiman in Cairo earlier on Wednesday.
"The DFLP presented its response to the Egyptian initiative for reconciliation and also offered its ideas and proposals to reach are conciliation deal and end the current destructive rift," said Zeidan.
The Palestinian left-wing group's leader insisted that legislative and presidential elections "should be held in accordance to its constitutional date which is on Jan. 25 and depend on the proportional system."
He also reiterated that the Palestinian factions "must agree on forming a unity government that includes all political powers, including rival Fatah and Hamas movements and rebuild the security apparatuses on professional basis."
Last week, Egypt presented to the Palestinian factions an initiative to end the Palestinian rift. Some factions accepted the proposal, others responded with reservations, while Hamas and the Islamic Jihad have not yet given their responses.
