GAZA -- Fawzi Barhoum, the spokesman of Hamas Movement in the Gaza Strip, said on Friday that the declaration of the Palestinian elections committee of its inability to hold elections in the presence of the rift between Gaza and the West Bank proves that Abbas’s edict was wrong and Hamas’s opinion was right.

In an interview with the Quds Press, Barhoum explained, “This is natural decision because the elections should be a result for the Palestinian harmony and not as preemptive step to enhance Abbas’s position at the expense of the Palestinian national harmony”.

He added, “The recommendation of the elections committee in this regard proves that Hamas’s opinion that no elections could be held in the absence of the national reconciliation was right”, saying that the committee’s decision removed one obstacle of a group of hindrances put by Abbas on the way of achieving national reconciliation.

Hanna Naser, the chairman of the PA elections committee announced Thursday that his committee couldn’t heed Abbas’s edict of holding the elections on the 24th of January next year due to the Palestinian political dispute.
