RAMALLAH, May 24 (Xinhua) -- The Palestinian new transitional unity government, which will be led by independent Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, is to be sworn in within one week, a senior Palestinian official announced on Saturday.
The new technocrats' government of Hamdallah will be sworn in before President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah in one week, said Abbas Zaki, a member of President Mahmoud Abbas Fatah Party's Central Committee.
"The designation of Hamdallah to be the premier of the unity government has been finally decided," said Zaki, adding that " Fatah Central Committee positively previewed the rest of the new government's ministers."
According to the reconciliation deal reached in Doha in February 2012, Abbas was supposed to head the unity government.
Abbas is also President of the Palestinian National Authority, Chief of Fatah Party, and Chairman of Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee.
Islamic Hamas officials had earlier announced that they don't oppose the idea of assigning Hamdallah as the prime minister of the unity government in case Abbas apologizes.
Nabil Abu Rdineh, spokesman of Fatah Central Committee, said in a press statement that all the ministers of the new unity government are independent technocrats.
The formation of the transitional unity government is the fruit of an agreement reached in Gaza on April 23 between Fatah and Hamas to form the unity government and prepare for holding the general elections.
