Fatah, the party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, claimed in a statement to have won in most of the municipalities, towns and villages in the West Bank after local elections took place on Saturday.

Spokesman Ahmad Assaf said in a statement: "We consider the victory as a major popular referendum on the movement's political programme and its national performance," Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted him as saying.

Polling stations shut Saturday after 12 hours of voting and preliminary results are not expected until 4 p.m on Sunday.
