Fayyad: Hamas losing support in Gaza Strip, West Bank

June 23, 2012 01:18

Hamas has been avoiding elections because it is pessimistic about their outcome, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said in an interview with The Washinton Post published Friday.

"It is a well-known fact borne out by various opinion polls that there has been a steady erosion in Hamas’s standing, both in the West Bank and Gaza," Fayyad said. "I believe that is why they have been dodging elections."
