      RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Fatah won Birzeit University's student senate election,
      which was boycotted by Hamas, officials said Wednesday.

      Mohammed Al-Ahmad, the dean of students, said Fatah won 29 of 51 seats.

      The Popular Struggle Front and Popular Front for the Liberation of
      Palestine's joint bloc won 14 seats, and eight others went to three smaller
      blocs, Al-Ahmad said.

      Seven blocs participated in the elections that were held "in a very positive
      atmosphere" under the auspices of Ramallah governor Laila Ghannam, he said.

      Voter turnout reached 50 percent despite the boycott calls, he said.

      Hamas said it would not participate because it did not believe the vote
      would be fair.
