Salam Fayyad Will Be Out As PA Prime Minister

May 3, 2011
Media_httpelectronici_hehddThere are growing signs that the Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad may be on his way out, as the rival Fatah and Hamas movements prepare to sign a reconciliation deal this week and form a new “unity government.”

An ouster of the internationally respected economist could cost the Palestinians hundreds of millions of dollars in Western aid, spell the end of critical US training for Palestinian security forces and endanger an effort to win support for Palestinian statehood at the United Nations.
…”Both Fatah and Hamas don’t want Fayyad as prime minister,” said Hani Masri, a Palestinian independent who has been mediating between the factions. “Nothing is impossible in politics, but so far Fayyad is not the preference of either side.”
