Hamas does not rule out the possibility of participating in the Palestinian Authority presidential election, slated for May 2012, Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said Monday.

He also predicted that Hamas would score a landslide victory in the upcoming parliamentary election, which is also expected to take place at the same time.

Hamas boycotted the two presidential elections that were held in the Palestinian territories in 1995 and 2005.
