Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas

(Worthy News) - A new public opinion survey showed the overwhelming majority of Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip are disillusioned with their leaders and desperate for presidential elections.

The poll, conducted by the Jerusalem Media and Communication Center and released Tuesday, showed that only 11 percent of Palestinians trust Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of Fatah, and 6% trust rival Hamas leader Ismael Haniyeh.

Around 48% said they don’t trust any political figure, and 87% are demanding elections. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
