    Nice. Now maybe Fatah and Hamas can stop killing each other and begin a political process between themselves.

    Where's the women btw?

    The government in the West Bank has never received PLC approval as required by their constitution.

    Fatah lost the elections but stays in power in the West Bank with US money and weapons.

    BTW, there are about half dozen Hamas women in the Parliament.

    To replace a prime minister the president must nominate a new one and he can take office after PLC approval. Until another is approved by the PLC the current one stays in office.

    Ismail Haneyya was nominated by Abbas and was approved by the PLC in March of 2007. Since then Abbas has nominated Fayyad but Fayyad has never received PLC approval and cannot take office.

    Ismail Haneyya is still the prime minister of Palestine.
