Nearly 80 per cent of Palestinians want President Abbas to quit: Poll

Arab News says a new poll has found that nearly 80 per cent of Palestinians want President Mahmoud Abbas to resign, reflecting widespread anger over the death of an activist in security forces’ custody and a crackdown on protests over the summer.

The survey released Tuesday found support for Abbas’ Hamas rivals remained high months after the 11-day Gaza war in May when the Islamic militant group was widely seen by Palestinians as having scored a victory against a far more powerful Israel while the Western-backed Abbas was sidelined.

The latest poll by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research found that 45 per cent of Palestinians believe Hamas should lead and represent them, while only 19 per cent said Abbas’ secular Fatah deserved that role, showing only a slight shift in favour of Fatah over the last three months.
