Abbas arrives in Gaza for talks with Haneya
font size    

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Gaza Sunday afternoon for talks with Prime Minister- designate Ismail Haneya of Hamas on forming a national unity government.

Sources of Abbas' Office said that the talks will focus on posts of the interior minister, who has to be an independent, and the deputy prime minister, who is to be from Fatah.

The Abbas-Haneya talks will be the first since Feb. 15 when the Hamas-led government resigned and Abbas asked Haneya to form a unity government.

Haneya ended rounds of talks with Palestinian factions to persuade them to join the coalition government.

The Islamic Jihad (Holy War), the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) were the major factions which refused to join the new government.

The Palestinian People's Party and the National Imitative Party agreed to join the coalition, in addition to six independents whose names are not made public.

Independent lawmaker Mustafa al-Barghouti, who is expected to be the information minister, also came with Abbas from Ramallah.
