GAZA, (PIC)-- Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council, stated Friday that his Movement does not fear to fight the elections, but the security instability and political arrests carried out by the Palestinian Authority (PA) against resistance fighters and women do not allow fair elections to take place in the West Bank.
During a cultural evening held in support of the Aqsa Mosque, Dr. Bahar added that his Movement would achieve a landslide victory if free and fair elections were held in the West Bank, noting that the Hebrew and international newspapers, and all opinion polls confirmed that Hamas enjoys wide popularity in the West Bank.
He underlined that the Palestinian people have the capacity to move the Palestinian cause towards victory and cited as an example the Palestinian young men who were honored recently for memorizing the holy Qur’an within three months, describing their success as one of the triumph stations.
At the end of his speech, the deputy speaker stressed that Hamas would remain steadfast in the path of resistance and loyal to the Palestinian cause and the blood of martyrs.
