Fayyed Says He Will Not Stand In The Way Of Unity
Current Palestinian Authority Prime Minister, Sallem Fayyed, has said that he will not stand in the way of national reconciliation but declined to say that he would step down from the position of PM in the new interim government in order to achieve consensus between Fatah and Hamas.
Salem Fayyed, speaking in Ramallah on Tuesday, said that he "can't and won't be an obstacle to Palestinian reconciliation", adding that "the decision to appoint the new prime minister should be a coordinated decision". However Fayyed did not go as far as to say he would forgo the position of PM to bring about agreement on a new unity government.
