Srinagar: Hardline separatist leader Syed
Ali Shah Geelani has been re-elected as the chairman of his
faction of the Hurriyat Conference for the third consecutive
three-year term.
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.
