Fatah, the ruling party of the Palestinian Authority, takes 19 seats in elections at the Polytechnic University in Hebron, while Hamas’s Islamic Block party takes 11 seats, and left-wing groups take just one seat.
Last year at Polytechnic, Fatah won 18 seats, while Hamas took 12.
Earlier in April, Fatah won the student elections at An-Najah University in Nablus, the biggest Palestinian university in the West Bank.
Student elections are seen by analysts as a barometer of the Palestinian public in the absence of any elections that included Hamas since 2006.
