Haniyeh submits documents on government
GAZA CITY — Hamas’ prime minister-designate Ismail Haniyeh yesterday submitted to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas a draft document outlining his proposals for the next government’s programme, an official said.

Haniyeh’s letter was in response to one from Abbas on February 21 in which the moderate Palestinian Authority president formally tasked the radical Islamist faction Hamas with assembling the next cabinet. “Abu Mazen (Abbas) received the letter of response from Haniyeh,” a senior Palestinian source told AFP on condition of anonymity, as the two men held talks in Gaza City.
Deck chairs. Titanic.
