Geelani re-elected Hurriyat chairman

Geelani was elected to the post unopposed during 'Majlis-e-Shoura' (advisory council) meeting here last evening, a Hurriyat spokesman said today.

The 82-year-old hawk was first elected as chairman of the hardline faction in 2004, a year after engineering a vertical split in the undivided Hurriyat over the alleged participation of Peoples Conference -- one of the constituents -- in 2002 assembly elections.
He was re-elected to the post unopposed in 2007.
