Text of letter: “Decision

By the Fatah Movement Central Committee


The Fatah Central Committee has decided to expel Nasser Al-Qidwa from the committee and from Fatah, in accordance with its decision that was made in the meeting on March 8, 2021 (the decision follows Al-Qidwa’s announcement earlier in March 2021 that he will form a separate list in the upcoming PA elections -Ed.). [This decision] determined that he will be given 48 hours to retract his declared positions, which transgress Fatah’s regulations and decisions, and which harm its unity – and if not, he will be expelled. [The decision was made] after all the efforts made towards him by the brothers entrusted with the matter failed.

In accordance with Fatah’s regulations and decisions, and to preserve its unity, it views its decision as valid as of today.


Ramallah, March 11, 2021


Mahmoud Abbas

Fatah Chairman”
