Egyptian PM: Hamas' victory is a demand for change
01/28/2006
Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif said Friday night the overwhelming vote for Hamas was a demand for change by the Palestinian people who want jobs, services, and a better life. British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said Hamas now must demonstrate that "the transfer of power from elite to street" produces real democracy for the Palestinians. Nazif and Straw spoke before an off-the-record dinner on Middle East issues at the World Economic Forum, a sellout event following Hamas' trouncing of the ruling Fatah party in Wednesday's legislative elections in the Palestinian territories.
