The Palestinian Presidential Elections of January 2005 are an important milestone in
Palestinian state-building for several reasons.

Palestinian elections are a critical point in the transition between Israeli military

rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and Palestinian self-government, a process that
began with the Palestinian-Israeli Declaration of Principles in September 1993 and the
first Palestinian presidential elections of January 1996.
