Hamas decides Palestinian cabinet

The Palestinian group Hamas has decided on a cabinet and has asked to present its list to the Palestinian Authority's president, Mahmoud Abbas.

It follows four weeks of talks on possible coalitions. It is expected that key posts will go to Hamas.

On Friday, Mr Abbas' Fatah party announced that it had refused to join a Hamas-led government.

Fatah wanted Hamas to recognise Palestinian agreements with Israel, but Hamas leaders have refused to do so.

"Hamas has ended the formation of the government. The cabinet is ready to be presented to President Mahmoud Abbas in a meeting to be agreed with him," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told the Reuters news agency.

A Fatah spokesman said Mr Abbas would be travelling to Gaza and would meet the prime minister-designate, Ismail Haniya, within 24 hours.

Challenges

Fatah was previously the dominant force in Palestinian politics, but Hamas won 74 seats of the 132 contested in the Palestinian Legislative Council elections in January.

Mr Abbas had given Hamas until 28 March - the date of parliamentary elections in Israel - to complete its line-up.

BBC Gaza correspondent Alan Johnston says a Hamas-led government without Fatah may make the task of governing an even tougher challenge for the militant group, as Fatah ministers might have taken on responsibilities for dealing with Israel and the West.

Israeli, the EU and the US regard Hamas as a terrorist organisation.

The EU and the US are talking of cutting crucial flows of aid funding if a Hamas-led government refuses to lay down its arms and pursue peace with Israel.
