BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Newly appointed Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah submitted his resignation to President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday, informed sources told Ma’an.

The decision is the result of a dispute over the premier’s jurisdiction and limits of power, the sources said.

Abbas swore Hamdallah into office on June 2. Upon taking the oath, Hamdallah pledged that his government would follow President Abbas’ agenda and policies.

His cabinet held only two official sessions. Days ago, Palestinians in Hamdallah’s hometown Nablus demonstrated to urge the government to fight high prices and to lower taxes.

In the short time since taking office, Hamdallah has visited Jerusalem and prayed at the al-Aqsa Mosque. He also met with representatives of organizations in Jerusalem.
