Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization


Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization

The Executive Committee (PLO EC) is the highest executive body of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Its 18 members are elected by the PLO Parliament, the Palestinian National Council (PNC), often as representatives of the PLO member factions. The Executive Committee members hold special areas of responsibility, such as military matters, foreign affairs, finance and social affairs, making their role similar to that of ministers in a national government. Elections have been held irregularly, and the last PLO Executive Committee was elected by the PNC in 1996.

It is headed by the Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
