Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas set December 15 as the deadline for nominating candidates for the Palestinian parliament election, his office said Monday. The election is set for Jan. 25. Hamas is putting together its list of candidates in secret, and is expected to wait until the last moment to make it public, in part because of fear that some of the candidates could be arrested by Israel. Abbas' Fatah party was to hold a primary in coming days. The vote initially was to take place last week, but was postponed, in part because of threats by gunmen demanding civil service jobs.
