Trust is an important indicator to measure the unconventional political participation, this study relied on the fifth wave of Arab-Barometers 2018-2019 and used ordinal logistic regression to analyze the relationship between political trust and political participation in Palestine. The results show statistically significant positive relationship between trusting political parties and Islamist movement and political participation. Trusting the president, prime minister, and government do not show any statistically significant relationship with political participation. This evidence contradicts with the institutional approach to explain the relationship between trust and political participation.
