New Palestinian prime minister quits

Thursday, June 20, 2013 |  Israel Today Staff  

Newly-installed Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah has tendered his resignation after a mere two weeks on the job, Arab media reported on Thursday.

Hamdallah reportedly resigned following severe disagreements with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

It was originally assumed that Abbas had appointed Hamdallah because of his pliant nature, unlike that of former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who repeatedly clashed with Abbas over the rampant corruption in the Palestinian regime.

It seems those assumptions might have been mistaken.
