Qadura Fares was a Palestinian Authority minister without portfolio under Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei from 2003 to 2005, and a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council for Fatah from 1996 to 2006. He is a close friend, aide and adviser to senior Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti. Fares is regarded as one of the principal architects of Fatah's 'young guard' movement, who briefly formed the al-Mustaqbal or "Future" list before joining with Mahmoud Abbas to form a united Fatah list for the upcoming elections. Fares was not nominated in the united list for the 2006 elections, and ran unsuccessfully as an independent in the Ramallah district. (via Freebase)
