The Palestinian Authority has carried out a limited reshuffle of its Cabinet. Hamas has objected to the reshuffle and described it as “unconstitutional and outside consensus” according to the Ma’an News Agency.
The five new Ministers are:
Hussein al-Araj; Minister of Local Governance
Sabri Saydam; Minister of Education
Samih al-Abed; Minister of Transportation
Sufian Sultan; Minister of Agriculture
Abeer Odeh; Minister of National Economy
Nineteen other Ministerial posts remain unchanged.
