Palestinian Authority

    The main Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah, agreed late March 14 on the makeup of a unity government under a power-sharing agreement reached last month in Saudi Arabia. The announcement came after Palestinian PM Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas and PA President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah met in Gaza City to resolve the final obstacles, including who will fill the key post of interior minister. The two leaders settled on a relative unknown: Hani Kawasmi and agreed on Azzam Ahmed, who heads Fatah’s parliamentary delegation, as Deputy PM. (Reuters)
