Fatah, Hamas 'to announce unity govt'

May 27, 2014 6:13 P.M. (Updated: May 28, 2014 11:36 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Representatives of Fatah and Hamas were in Gaza City on Tuesday discussing a final agreement on the names of ministers who will make up a unity government.

Well-placed sources told Ma’an that Rami Hamdallah is likely to become minister of interior, while current minister of finance Shukri Bishara is likely to keep the finance portfolio. The portfolio of foreign affairs will either be given to current minister Riyad al-Maliki or to Ziad Abu Amr who will also be deputy prime minister, according to the source.

The ministry of endowment will be given to Mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, while Kamal Shirafi will keep the portfolios of social affairs and labor, added the sources.

Mamoon Abu Shahla, from the Gaza Strip, will become minister of economy, they added. An agreement has been reached to combine the ministries of public works and transportation.

Fatah leader in charge of coordination with Hamas Azzam al-Ahmad is expected leave Gaza for Ramallah later Tuesday after he signs with Hamas officials a final list of 15 cabinet ministers.
