According to Arab media reports, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has agreed to assign Hamas spokesman, Ghazi Hamad, as the new PA interior minister. The nomination comes approximately a month after former PA interior minister, Hani Kawassmeh, resigned following accusations that other members of the unity government had robbed him of his powers and foiled his plan to impose law and order in the Gaza Strip.
