The Fatah party was set to hold its primary elections in Gaza on Monday. Approximately 200,000 residents of the Gaza Strip were considered eligibile to vote in five districts for any of 360 listed candidates. Palestinian Authority Civil Affairs Muhammad Minister Dahlan was believed to be the leading candidate in Khan Yunis, while Samir Nashrawi was considered most likely to take Gaza City. Minister of Prisoner Affairs Sufian Abu Zaida was thought most likely to win in the northern region of the strip. Veteran Fatah figure, Abdal Rahman Hamad, forfeited his candidacy Sunday, apparently fearing to lose to Abu Zaida who was thought popular among the younger generation. The primary elections for the Fatah party in the West Bank were held on Friday.
