‘Democratic’ Fatah pressures employees to vote for its lists in West Bank

[ PIC 01/10/2012 – 07:29 PM ]

WEST BANK, (PIC)– Many sources reported that the civilian and military employees at PA were ordered to support Fatah movement’s lists in the upcoming municipal elections.

The sources told PIC’s correspondent that this generalization is contrary to the claims of the Ramallah authority that it is impartial and neutral regarding the local elections.

They also stated that the security apparatuses ordered all their elements to vote only for Fatah’s official blocs and that any element who will disobey the order will face accountability.

After closing the door for nominations for the local elections, Fatah and its security apparatuses started a campaign of intimidation and threats against those who run for elections in rival lists, which led to the withdrawal of many candidates after being threatened to be dismissed from their jobs.
