Hamas 'confiscates' Elections Commission vehicles

Jan. 14, 2011 3:24 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 14, 2011 3:13 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Authorities in the Gaza Strip on Thursday confiscated cars belonging to the Central Elections Commission, voting officials said calling on Hamas to return them.

The commission said in a statement that it is independent, neutral and has nothing to do with the internal differences that have plagued the Palestinian territories since the 2006 elections.

Hamas closed CEC headquarters in November 2009, refusing to hold elections until it and Fatah reconciled in a unity agreement that Egypt has tried and failed to broker for years.
