Abbas Recommended to Serve as Interim Government Prime Minister
After recent meetings in Qatar, mediated by Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas Chief Khaled Mashaal announced that Abbas should serve as the Prime Minister of the Interim-Government, until elections can take place later this year. The two met in Doha, the Qatari capital, despite recent tensions between the parties, particularly in light of the rejection of a Fatah visit to the Gaza Strip by Hamas last month.
During the 2006 elections, Hamas took the majority of seats and votes away from the previously ruling Fatah party, resulting in heightened tensions between the two, and sanctions launched against the Gaza Strip by the international community.
