According to Sky News, it is anticipated that Keir Starmer's campaign platform will include a commitment to acknowledge a Palestinian state prior to the conclusion of peace negotiations.

Sources close to the document have indicated that it will propose the recognition of a Palestinian state as an integral component of the peace negotiations, without being obstructed by other regional states.

The phrasing appears to be a move to calm the more progressive members of his party, who have been upset since the leadership dismissed the idea of a ceasefire following the attacks on October 7.

The Labour Party maintains that Sir Keir's stance on recognizing Palestine through an international framework, while ensuring Israel's safety and security, remains unchanged.

The platform, set to be approved later today by party leaders and union representatives, is expected to focus on maintaining economic stability and national security, while being conservative with new pledges.

It revolves around the six main commitments that Sir Keir has highlighted throughout his campaign.

The agreement will be officially approved following extensive talks at today's "Clause Five" meeting and will be revealed to the public next Thursday, marking a crucial point in the election campaign.

In a recent discussion on Sky News, Sir Keir responded to inquiries about whether his potential administration would acknowledge a Palestinian state, similar to Spain, Ireland, and Norway. He emphasized that such a recognition should occur "at the appropriate moment in the [peace] process" and must garner "international support and agreement on the correct timing."

He emphasized, "We can only achieve this by collaborating with our partners."

Israel responded with strong disapproval to the actions taken by a number of European countries, with Benjamin Netanyahu describing these actions as a "reward for terrorism."

Labour views Sir Keir's stance as distinct from the actions taken by those administrations.

A spokesperson stated: "Our stance on acknowledging a Palestinian state through a global process was established during the National Policy Forum in July of last year."

The plan aims to diverge from the pledges made in Jeremy Corbyn's 2017 and 2019 manifestos, which included the "immediate and unconditional recognition of the state of Palestine."

The language expected to appear in the manifesto reflects the sentiments of the Foreign Secretary, Lord Cameron, who, in a January address to the Conservative Middle East Council, stated that the Palestinian people must see "irreversible progress" toward a two-state solution, which includes actions at the United Nations.

Language pertaining to labor rights in the preliminary platform, which has sparked disputes with union leaders for some time, is reportedly committed to prohibiting "abusive" zero-hour agreements and the practice of firing and then rehiring employees.
