MK Ahmed Tibi (UAL-Ta'al) on Friday predicted that if Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas does not run in the presidential elections in the PA territories, the next PA leader will not negotiate with Israel about the 2-state solution. In a televised speech from Ramallah, Abbas announced Thursday that he had informed Fatah and PLO officials of his decision to withdraw from the presidential race. The political circumstances had to change before Abbas would reconsider, Tibi told Israel Radio. "Who says that Abbas's job is to safeguard Netanyahu and Lieberman's coalition?" Tibi said.
