Leader of Palestinian resistance faction Hamas, Khaled Meshaal, said Thursday that his group was ready to take part in upcoming Palestinian presidential and parliamentary polls, dates for which have yet to be set.
"We are ready for presidential and parliamentary elections," Meshaal said in a phone conversation during a ceremony held by a Hamas-affiliated student coalition to celebrate its victory in student union elections at Ramallah's Birzeit University.
"The victory of the [pro-Hamas] Al-Wafaa Bloc, in student union elections is a step towards the Palestinian unity plan… Everyone is a winner because democracy has prevailed," Meshaal said.
He added that all Palestinian factions should join efforts to liberate occupied Palestinian land and establish an independent state of Palestine.Last Mod: 23 Nisan 2015, 17:00
