Fatah’s Status Quo Congress

The candidate who came in first, with two-thirds of the vote, was Abd al-Mahir Ghuneim, who is increasingly being spoken of as Abbas’s successor. Ghuneim is an unrepentant hardliner and an open opponent of the Oslo agreement, much less of a negotiated peace agreement with Israel.

most of Fatah’s new leaders have a strong distaste for Hamas, which makes rapprochement between the two groups unlikely.
