Notable Quotes
Jamal Hwail, 33, who has been in an Israeli jail since April 2002 on accusations he was an al- Aqsa leader, won a spot on Fatah's list from the town of Jenin. If elected, he plans to send written proposals to parliament and use a cell phone he smuggled into his jail cell to stay in touch. His first priority if elected would be to fight corruption and his second would be to secure the release of prisoners like himself, he said in an interview with The Associated Press over the cell phone.
