PA cabinet headed by Salam Fayyad sworn in, ending any chances of forming a Fatah-Hamas unity government.
A new Palestinian Authority cabinet headed by Salam Fayyad was sworn in before PA President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday, ending any chances of forming a Fatah-Hamas unity government.
Last week, Abbas entrusted Fayyad with forming a new cabinet until circumstances allow the formation of a unity government with Hamas, as agreed in the Doha Accord between Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal earlier this year.

How can the PLO set up a new government for “Palestine”?
There has not been any elections since 2009.
This so-called statehood do not exist, and there is still a civil war going on between the PLO and Hamas.
The government in Ramallah is a paper tiger. It can only exist with the massive monetary support from the US and EU. What a mockery of democracy.
