Palestinian PM Submits Govt Resignation02/26 06:21

   Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said Monday his government is 
resigning, in a move that could open the door to U.S.-backed reforms in the 
Palestinian Authority.

   JERUSALEM (AP) -- Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said Monday 
his government is resigning, in a move that could open the door to U.S.-backed 
reforms in the Palestinian Authority.

   President Mahmoud Abbas must still decide whether he accepts Shtayyeh and 
his government's resignation. But the move signals a willingness by the 
Western-backed Palestinian leadership to accept shake-up that might usher in 
reforms seen as necessary to revitalize the Palestinian Authority.

   The U.S. wants a reformed Palestinian Authority to govern Gaza once the war 
is over. But many obstacles remain to making that vision a reality.

   "The next stage and its challenges require new governmental and political 
arrangements that take into account the new reality in the Gaza Strip," 
Shtayyeh said at a Cabinet meeting.

   Abbas is expected to choose Mohammad Mustafa, chairman of the Palestine 
Investment Fund, as the next prime minister.
