The Bush administration wants Palestinian Authority elections to take place Jan. 25 as scheduled, with voting in eastern Jerusalem as well. “We see no reason why those elections should not proceed on Jan. 25,” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Tuesday. “We believe that the Palestinian Authority should be concentrating on preparations for those elections, so that Palestinian people can vote in an atmosphere that is free from violence or coercion or intimidation.”
