The top Hamas candidate, Ismail Haniyeh, told reporters in Gaza on Tuesday that the election must not be postponed under any circumstances, despite growing pressure by Abbas' Fatah Party to put off the vote. "We have told them (Fatah) that postponing the election will lead to a vacuum and to a dark future," Haniyeh said. "Postponing the election is not the solution. We urged them (Fatah) to go ahead with the election." On Monday, Abbas complained that Israel is balking at allowing Jerusalem's Palestinians to participate. "We all agree that Jerusalem should be included in the elections," Abbas said in Doha, Qatar. "If it is not included, all the factions agree there should be no elections."
