*The Generation for Democratic Renewal (civil society/youth)
The Generation for Democratic Renewal (جيل التجديد الديمقراطي), also known as JAD, is a youth-led political initiative. It is in the process of forming a “Virtual Parliamentary List” made up of young Palestinians who believe in what it describes as an inclusive and democratic political program. It is open to candidates between the ages of 18-45 years old. The virtual list is designed to act as an incubator for future youth-led political mobilisation.
JAD chose not to run in the May 2021 legislative elections due to legal restrictions that prohibited many younger Palestinians from registering as candidates and participating directly in the Palestinian National Council (PNC).
