Jerusalem24 – Israeli press sources said that Israel agreed to the visit of a member of the Fatah Central Committee Minister Hussein Al-Sheikh to the prisoner Marwan Barghouti in Israeli prisons, as it is expected that the visit will take place today if there is no change at the last moment.
Marwan Barghouti is one of the most prominent leaders of the Fatah movement, who has been imprisoned for 19 years and is sentenced to life imprisonment in Israel.
Sources within the Fatah movement close to the prisoner, Marwan Barghouti, had spoken of his intention to run for the presidential elections, to be the Palestinian president detained in Israeli prisons.
According to opinion polls, Prisoner Marwan enjoys great Palestinian popularity and sympathy, and he may be a strong candidate for winning the presidential elections.
Other sources also reported that Marwan Barghouti intends to prepare an electoral list that is different from the official electoral list of Fatah, and contains leaders from the movement enjoying popularity and respect by the public.
It seems that the minister and the leader of Fatah Hussein al-Sheikh will hold a round of dialogue and negotiations with the captive Marwan Barghouti, and in an attempt to reach an agreement with him in order to run in the legislative elections in one list, and in order to resolve the situation regarding the Fatah candidate for the presidency, as more than one Palestinian official has previously stated The current president, Mahmoud Abbas, is the movement’s only candidate.
It seems that Fatah’s internal problems will be one of the mines that can be exploded at any moment to destroy the possibility of holding elections that have been absent for 15 years, as it is unlikely that Fatah will once again run in those elections with scattered ranks, as happened in the 2006 elections, when Hamas took advantage of Fatah’s internal conditions and managed Easy to win at the election.
