A Palestinian businessman who serves in the Hamas-led Cabinet retracted his resignation on Monday. Communications Minister Jamal Khodari, an independent who had Hamas support, resigned Sunday, but Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh met him and told him the Cabinet would reject his resignation. Khodari said he was stepping down to promote formation of a national unity government, but his intentions were misunderstood, and so he decided to accept Haniyeh's request to remain in office, he said in a statement on Monday.
