A poll hosted by the Palestine News Network has shown that the majority of Palestinians, around 80%, have no confidence in the reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas, saying that there is no hope for the reconciliation.
The poll was published on the PNN website several weeks ago directly after the news about Fatah and Hamas signed an agreement on the formation of a new consensus government. The poll shows that:
Around 80.4% of Palestinians voted "no confidence" in Fatah and Hamas. The result shows that Palestinian society has lost confidence in the reconciliation after a series of disappointments that followed the promises broken by Hamas and Fatah over the implementation of the agreement.
The percentage of those who trust Fatah and Hamas - those who had "medium confidence" – was around 13.8%
Only 4.1% had "high confidence" and 1.7% responded that they didn't know.
The poll showed different attitudes and views of the Palestinian street regarding the reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas.
The Palestine News Network occasionally runs these website polls that address topical issues with professional and accurate methods, such as not allowing multiple votes. The polls reflect the views of Arabic website readers.
The network recently launched a new survey addressing the impact of the Egyptian presidential election on reality in Palestine.
