Scope of this template[edit]

This template is not purely to cover elections held under the auspices of the PNA. It covers any elections held in what are today the Palestinian territories. This is in line with other templates such as {{Bangladeshi elections}}, which covers elections in British India, Pakistan (when Bangladesh was part of it) and the modern-day country.

As for removing the future elections, please refrain from doing so until the result of the AfDs. Until then the articles still exist and are legitimately linked. Number 57 07:13, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

This is the most ridiculous and absurd thing I have ever seen. The elections of the Mandate have absolutely nothing to do with modern Israel or the PA. It would be like including the presidents of the Articles of Confederations with the presidents of the Constitution. I am not familiar with the Bangladeshi setup, but it looks like they at least had continuously running elections the whole time. This has a 73 year gap. I think the 1923 should be removed from this template and the Israel template.--Metallurgist (talk) 22:00, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Number 57, this is not the way to promote your own articles. Make useful links in articles.

Promoting my own articles? What on earth are you talking about? I have also reinstated the 1970s elections, as they were not "non-existing" - see this source, and have since started West Bank local elections, 1976. Number 57 10:33, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

I welcome your article, but the elections were not Palestinian elections. They were Israeli and not democratic.--Wickey-nl (talk) 12:04, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
If you remove the articles from here again I'm afraid I will have to report you for edit warring. Per WP:BRD, they remain on until there is consensus for them to be removed. Regardless of what you think, the elections were held in the West Bank and Palestinians voted in them. Number 57 13:56, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
