Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is ready to renew negotiations with Israel immediately, his top aide said Tuesday, after exit polls predicted an election victory for acting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Olmert is seen as favoring unilateral Israeli action, particularly with a Hamas government poised to take power in the Palestinian territories, and wants to draw Israel's final borders by 2010.
