Hamas Allows PA Election Committee to Resume Gaza Work

Senior Hamas member Salah Al-Bardawil reported, Friday, that the Hamas administration in Gaza has agreed to allow the Palestinian Authority's Central Election Committee to resume its work in Gaza. Al-Bardawil said Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh invited the chairman of the committee to update the voter registration books.

A few months ago, Hamas forced the committee to stop its work in Gaza because the rival Fatah faction was arresting Hamas members in Judea and Samaria (Shomron)
