Hamas: 'We Have No Faith in Unity Government, We Need Elections'

A leader of Hamas's political bureau, Khalil al-Haya said today (Thursday) in a press release that the organization has no faith in the Unity Government, according to reports in the Palestinian media. In addition, al-Haya called for general elections to be held as quickly as possible.

"The optimal solution to the situation is to hold elections," al-Haya stated, adding "The Unity Government failed in bringing in the UN and Israel to rebuild the Gaza Strip following the war in the south. The Unity Government, which was formed in early June, was with an understanding between Fatah and Hamas that elections would be held within six months, and then additionally decided to reconstruct the Gaza Strip."
