Fatah, Hamas running neck in neck in PA voting

Some seven hours into Saturday's early balloting for Palestinian security forces in the PA parliamentary elections, exit polls showed PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party leading in Ramallah, Kalkilya, and Jericho in the West Bank and in Rafah and Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip. Hamas was ahead in Gaza and in Hebron, as well as in Deir el-Balah and Tulkarm. In Nablus, Bethlehem, Jenin, Jerusalem, Salfit, and Tubas, the two parties were running neck and neck, Israel Radio reported.
