A day after Hamas condemned an announcement by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that elections will be held on January 24, Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub said Hamas was wrong to reject a Palestinian reconciliation agreement negotiated by Egypt, Israel Radio reported on Saturday. Hamas sets conditions and acts as if it were a power, Rajoub said, stressing that the group could not dictate its will to the Palestinian people. According to the report, Rajoub said that in the coming weeks, Fatah check how Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem will be able to participate in the elections.
