Early Election Results Point To New Direction For Fatah

August 11, 2009

West Bank (ChattahBox) – New hope for Middle East peace has been felt by many, as the early results of the most recent council election shows a change in dominant support.

According to the early results that were leaked by unnamed officials, it is the younger generation of the Fatah party that is holding the greatest number of votes.

It is a change from the past, when older founding members were most likely to take council seats.

“This is a coup against a leadership that had monopolized the movement for a long time without even presenting a report about its work,” Jibril Rajoub, 56, a former aid of Yasser Arafat, who was one of the projected winners, was quoted by MSNBC.

Joining him were two others from the young Fatah movement, Marwan Barghout, 50, and Mohammed Dahlan, 47.

The results have not been officially announced.
