Fatah representatives over the weekend urged PA President Mahmoud Abbas to replace Prime Minister Salam Fayyad with a Fatah official.
In the past few weeks, supporters of Fatah scored major victories in elections for student councils at four universities in the West Bank. Fatah supporters also won a majority of seats at three West Bank colleges. The victories are seen by Fatah as a vote of confidence in Abbas and the faction's policies and strategy.
