Ministers within the Palestinian Authority cabinet will offer their resignation on Monday in order to allow PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to choose new ministers at the request of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, according to a Reuters report citing political sources on Sunday.

Fayyad and other ministers within Abbas's cabinet have long called for the move. 

"There will be massive change in the composition of the government," a political source told Reuters. The PA cabinet was established in 1993 as part of interim peace deals with Israel.

"Dr. Fayyad will immediately start his discussion with the factions to form the cabinet," an additional sources said. "Some ministers will keep their portfolios."
