Cairo, 14 Rabiul Akhir 1434/24 February2013 (MINA) – Ibrahim Alderawi , the director of Palestinian Centre for Studies in Cairo told Alresalah.ps that all Palestinian reconciliation files should implemented simultaneously between the two parties [Hamas & Fatah].
He added that Egypt ensured the existence of a “supervisory committee to follow up the implementation of what will be agreed upon under the chairmanship of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service.
Fatah and Hamas have to show “flexibility” in order to achieve the aspirations of the Palestinian people, Alderawi said, according to a report published in www.alresalah.ps monitored by Mi’raj News Agency (MINA), Sunday morning.
Egyptian-sponsored talks between the leading Palestinian factions concluded after the two delegations met, headed by Moussa Abu Marzouk, Hamas’s deputy political bureau chief, and Azzam al-Ahmad, a senior Fatah official.
“They agreed to hold a meeting for the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s (PLO) leadership and to resume the work of the Central Elections Committee in the West Bank and the Gaza strip no later than the 30th of this month,” Abu Marzouk told Al-Hayat after the talks.
“Talks to form the government should also begin on the 30th of this month. The same applies to the committees for public freedoms and reconciliation.”
“The atmosphere was positive, mirroring that of the latest meetings between President Abbas and Hamas Chief Khaled Meshaal. The activation committee will endorse the National Council’s electoral law and a committee for the national council elections held abroad will be formed,” declared Izzat al-Rishq, a member of the political bureau.
Regarding the government committee, Rishq said that “the consultations between both parties will begin by the month’s end at the latest, while the committees of public freedoms and of reconciliation will resume their work in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.”
A higher committee with both Fatah and Hamas, and headed by Egypt, will regularly meet to ensure the reconciliation agreement is executed and to resolve any problems that hinder its implementation. (T/P02/E1)
