Srinagar: Mirwaiz Umer Farooq was on Monday unanimously elected chairman of the moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference for two years.

The re-election of Mirwaiz, who heads Awami Action Committee (AAC) as chairman of the separatist amalgam -- third time in a row -- was unanimous, a Hurriyat spokesman said after a meeting of the executive council held at its headquarters at Rajbagh.

All the executive members -- Prof Abdu Gani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone, Aga Syed Hassan al-Mousvi Al-Safvi, Masroor Abbass Ansari, Moulana Mohammad Abdullah Tari and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza -- attended the meet.

The spokesman said election for the chairman was scheduled in June this year, but was delayed by three months due to "ups and downs" in the situation.
