Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh plan to meet in Gaza City on Friday after failing to reach a final agreement on the new government the previous night. The concept is to replace the Cabinet of Hamas ministers with independent experts linked to, but not members of, the two movements. Abbas and his Palestine Liberation Organization would be charged with handling peace negotiations, while the Cabinet would deal with the daily affairs of the Palestinian areas.
