PPSF elects new Secretary General replacing deceased former leader

Aug. 12, 2009 2:39 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 13, 2009 9:21 A.M.)
Ramallah – Ma’an – The Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF) elected Dr Ahmad Majdalani as the new Secretary General of the party on Wednesday; he replaces Samir Ghousha who passed away last week.

In a press conference at the Palestine Media Center in Ramallah, Majdalani confirmed his position, but noted he had no intention of resigning from his government post as Minister of Labor in the current caretaker government.

The PPSF will continue to adhere to what Majdalani described as the “unchangeable Palestinian principles and policies outlined by Ghousha.”

Majdalani said he would work to focus the party’s efforts on enhancing democracy within Palestinian institutions, enhancing democratic coalitions within the Palestine Liberation Organization, and developing PLO institutions. The focus on democracy stems from the stance that elections will end the internal Palestinian rivalry and restore unity, he said.

The quiet elections come as Palestinians across the West Bank are focused on the results of the elections at the Sixth Fatah Congress, which completed half of its governing body elections Wednesday.
