Leader of Palestinian independents announces resignation

May 29, 2011 9:34 P.M. (Updated: May 29, 2011 9:34 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Head of the independent political figures in Gaza announced Sunday that he would resign from his post upon the implementation of the unity agreement.

Abed Al-Aziz Ash-Sheqaqi issued a statement as Fatah and Hamas officials met in Gaza City, paving the way for the activation of a unity deal signed in Cairo on 4 May, which formally ended four years of division between the rival parties, and paved the way for Palestinian elections.

"We are standing today at the threshold of national unity, we hope that national interests will overcome personal and factional interests," Ash-Sheqaqi said in a statement.
