GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Zulfikar Suergo, a member of the Central Committee of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), announced his withdrawal from public political life May 7 on Facebook. He did not state the reasons behind his decision.

Suergo, born in Gaza City in 1963, joined the Palestinian left wing as a high school student there. In 2006, he ran in parliamentary elections to represent Gaza City, but failed to secure a seat. Suergo has been a member of the Central Committee since 2008 and is also a member of the national committee to follow up on the electricity dossier in the Gaza Strip.
