Nablus governor: Islamic bloc's arrest allegations 'fabricated'

Oct. 29, 2008 5:35 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 29, 2008 5:35 P.M.)
Nablus/Salfit - Ma'an - The Islamic bloc at An-Najah National University did not decide to boycott student elections in response to arrests, the governor of Nablus said Wednesday.

The bloc had previously claimed that "the main reason why [we] pulled out of the student elections is that the security services arrested dozens affiliated to the bloc," according to a statement.

But Nablus Governor Jamal Muheisen said Wednesday that the allegations were "fabricated and not true, at all."

"Their aim is to create a problematic atmosphere at the university and among its students, all the while the university is trying to create a democratic atmosphere," he said.

"I challenge the Islamic bloc to list the names of those who were allegedly arrested by security services," Muheisen added.

The governor also said that the Islamic bloc should be "more reasonable" and avoid blaming others for their pullout from elections, especially "if their reasons for doing so were personal."
