Palestinian leftwing party ratifies leadership during Congress

Ramallah, May 21 (Prensa Latina) The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) ratified Ahmed Saadat as its Secretary General, who was held in Israeli jails since 2002, according to a statement released by the leftist party on Saturday.

The text stated that the organization held its 8th Congress, which also maintained Jamil Mezher as second leader, although new members were elected for the Political Bureau and the Central Committee.

During the meeting, the political program and the strategy of struggle against Israeli occupation were addressed, the statement noted.

Participants reaffirmed the historic rights of the Palestinian people and rejected any commitment to the aggressor, the document highlighted.

Saadat was arrested and accused of ordering the death in 2001 of Israeli far right-wing Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi, who was assassinated at a PFLP operation in retaliation for the killing of its leader, Abu Ali Mustafa.

Founded by George Habash in 1967, the PFLP is the second largest party in the Palestine Liberation Organization.
