Fatah-Hamas Unity Stalls: No Announcement of Unity Government after Meeting

Despite expectations that the make-up of a Palestinian unity government under the joint-aegis of Fatah and Hamas would be released on Tuesday, a meeting between representatives of the two factions ended with no such revelations. Fatah negotiator Azzam Al-Ahmad had said the list would be announced on Tuesday, but has now says it will be released on Thursday. There have been conflicting reports over whether Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah will remain in his post or become the interior minister. Riyad Al-Maliki, the current foreign minister, is expected to retain his post. Some are already questioning whether the make-up of the unity cabinet is truly comprised of non-aligned technocrats as has been promised.
