After the installation of the Palestinian National Authority (5 Jul 1994), the name of the state was sporadically used in legislation. After the election of the President of the State of Palestine (23 Nov 2008), the style was used in the promulgation of laws, executive orders, etc.

International Legal Materials 33, no. 3 (1994): 622-720.
