Fatah, Hamas officials to meet in Cairo

Feb. 6, 2013 1:07 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 10, 2013 9:50 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fatah and Hamas officials will meet Wednesday in Cairo to follow up on prior reconciliation agreements and elections, a Fatah official said Wednesday.

Yahya Rabah told Ma'an that the delegations representing both factions will meet in Cairo to discuss the work of the Palestinian Central Elections Commission's work, which is to resume this month.

Rabah said voting centers would re-open within days, and voter cards will be reissued over a 10-day period.

The long-embattled reconciliation deal, signed in 2011, once again ground to a halt until a renewed push earlier this month.

A PLO meeting set for Friday in Cairo will select members of a joint government in addition to selecting the leadership of the PLO.

An official from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said Tuesday that elections for the PLO's Palestinian National Council were likely to be held in six months.

Jamil Mezher told Ma'an that he hoped a PLO reform committee summit scheduled for Friday would facilitate implementing the reconciliation deal between rival Palestinian political factions.
