22:15, December 01, 2011

RAMALLAH, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian Labor Minister Ahmed Majdalani submitted his resignation Thursday after he insulted public employees on a live radio talk show.

Majdalani said in a statement that he had submitted his resignation to Palestinian National Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

Majdalani, also a member of Palestine Liberation Organization's Executive Committee, said that he would resign from the government "to cut the way before shaking social unity."

Unaware that microphone was still on, the minister described public servants as "brothers of whores." The words were broadcasted live on five local FM radios.

Abbas and Fayyad have not decided whether to accept the resignation or not.
