Add comment on:Jailed leader Marwan Barghouti may stand for president
The Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti is planning to stand for election for the presidency from his Israeli prison cell, according to his supporters. "If there is an election, he intends to run like every other Palestinian leader and he would stand a good chance since he is so popular," the close supporter said. Mr Barghouti, a street-fighter turned politician who gained fame as one of the main leaders of the Palestinian uprising on the West Bank, came out well ahead of any of his rivals in a respected opinion poll in September.
