Fatah Lebanon votes in new committee
A+ A-

BEIRUT: A new committee for the Fatah Movement in Lebanon was elected Monday, Palestinian sources told the Central News Agency. 

The Fatah Movement began its third general conference Sunday to elect new members for the party’s Lebanon branch, with 50 candidates competing for 15 posts. 

The conference, named after prominent Palestinian leader Abu Ali Iyad, was held at the Palestinian Embassy in the Beirut neighborhood of Jnah. It is held every two years to elect members of the party’s general secretariat in Lebanon. 

There are already around 163 members in the Lebanese Regional Council who were elected by Fatah members from camps in Sidon, Tyre, the Bekaa Valley and north Lebanon. 

Eleven members of the committee won from the list of candidates, led by incumbent Secretary-General of Fatah in Lebanon Rifaat Shanaa, and four from the competing list, led by Abu Ahmad Zaidani. The 15 elected members will meet later to elect a new secretary-general.
