Al Jazeera Quatari based satellite channel reported  Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s denial  on Thursday that he had been nominated for Palestinian coming premiership.



"Hamas is still continuing its internal consultations to determine who will be asked to head the coming government," he told Reuters after a senior Hamas official said the movement’s newly elected Hamas legislators had chosen him.



"Such an important position requires consultations between leaders in the (Palestinian) territories, in prisons and in exile. Nothing official has been reached so far, and when a decision is made, it will be published," Haniyeh said.
