The first meeting between Fatah and Hamas on implementing the reconciliation deal will be held within a week in Egypt, an official in the Fatah movement said Sunday.

"We have agreed to hold our first meeting on implementing the reconciliation deal after the end of the current round of sessions of the Fatah Revolutionary Council," Azzam al-Ahmed, a member of the Fatah Executive Committee, told Voice of Palestine radio.

The meeting will discuss forming the government as well as the figures nominated to head the cabinet, he added.

The Palestinian rival parties signed a reconciliation pact in Cairo Wednesday to end four years of political division.

Under the agreement, a technocratic government will be formed to prepare for the general elections within a year.
