Fatah & Hamas agree on 1st election in 15 years, with hopes for national council

Rival Palestinian factions have finally agreed on terms to hold a first election in 15 years in just a few months. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas orders three successive rounds of national elections, with the first set for late May. However, observers are very skeptical. This is not the first time that Abbas has vowed to hold elections, after his four-year term expired all the way back in 2009.
