Abu Zuhri slams Abbas’s claim of right to form transition government

GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri has objected to statements by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on his claim to the right of responsibility in forming the transition government.

He called the statement a major step backward from the reconciliation deal that states that the forming of the government must be done in agreement of both parties.

Abbas’s statement was further evidence of exclusivity in decision making and an example of selectivity in dealing with Fatah party in national agreements, Abu Zuhri said in a statement on Monday.

Abu Zuhri also called on the Fatah party to start following through with its part of the reconciliation deal and to stop turning its back on agreements and emphasized the need for new rounds of talks including all parties with the aim of defining a strategy to resist the occupation and end exclusivity.
