Fatah Halts Primaries in Gaza

"GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - The Palestinians' ruling Fatah Party halted its primary election across the Gaza Strip on Monday after angry gunmen shot in the air at several polling stations, stole some ballot boxes and destroyed others.

Fatah officials said the votes cast Monday would be nullified, and the primary would have to be rescheduled. The election violence highlighted the ongoing lawlessness in Gaza's streets.

"The Fatah General Committee held an urgent meeting in Gaza this afternoon to evaluate the primary elections and the committee decided to freeze the election due to the serious violations that took place during the voting process today," the statement said."
Hey, we need these people to help in the next Iraqi election. I wonder what's really going down, could it be that Abbas is actually interested in a fair election! Can't be, right?
