Hamas wins student elections at top West Bank university

For the third year in a row, Hamas’s student party beat the rival Fatah party in student elections at the West Bank’s most prestigious Palestinian university, Bir Zeit.

Student elections are seen by analysts as a barometer of the Palestinian public in the absence of any elections that have included Hamas since 2006.

Hamas’s Islamic bloc party got 25 seats, while Fatah’s party took 22.
