Palestinian unity government may be in place before Abbas-Olmert Meeding.

Palestinians are hurrying to put this government in place, apparently so they can present Olmert with a fait accompli.

Palestinian unity government to be announced within a week, senior Fatah
legislator says

Gaza - Ma'an - The head of the Fatah bloc in the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), Azzam Al-Ahmad, has said that he expects the formation of the Palestinian national unity government to be completed by the end of this coming week, and before the meeting between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert.

In a press conference held in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Friday night, Al-Ahmad said, "Abbas will be coming to Gaza on Sunday to continue consultations with the prime minister in order to reach a final decision regarding the government." He hinted that some of the factions have refused to participate in the unity government.

Al-Ahmad added that he did not give the list of names for the Fatah ministers to Prime Minister Haniyeh during his meeting with him as was expected, but he assured that this can be done at any time.

Al-Ahmad expressed his hope that the problem of the participation of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in the incoming government will be solved.

In regard to the differences between Hamas and Fatah regarding the ministry of the interior, he said, "This will be decided in the Abbas-Haniyeh meeting", which is planned for Sunday in Gaza City. He believes that there are positive signs which suggest that the government will be formed in the coming few days.

In the same sequence, the head of the Hamas bloc in the PLC, Khalil El-Haiyeh, said that his movement will submit the names of their nominees to the prime minister on Saturday. He told journalists that Hamas' meeting with the Fatah delegation on Friday was serious and removed all obstacles and differences. He also said that they have urged Fatah to present the names of their nominees as soon as possible.
