Top members of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement agreed on Wednesday to hold its first congress in 20 years in August in Bethlehem in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The secular movement, which dominated Palestinian politics for decades until losing a 2006 election to Hamas Islamists, had spent some four years wrangling over convening a congress that would set it on a path of reform and democratization. Fatah's Revolutionary Council (FRC) voted 67 to 11 to hold the meeting on August 4 in Bethlehem, officials said, after Egypt and Jordan refused to play host.

Abbas has asked Egypt, which is sponsoring Palestinian reconciliation talks, to press Hamas to let Fatah members in the Gaza Strip travel to the West Bank. 
Hamas banned 10 Gaza-based Fatah activists from participating in the FRC meeting in the West Bank, Fatah officials said.

...


Abbas hopes to gain political clout by healing rifts between Fatah members in exile and those based in the Palestinian territories who have lived under Israeli occupation and have been on the front line of a struggle for statehood. Abbas wants the congress to grant wider reprsentation to a younger generation of Fatah activists.
