RAMALLAH  - Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas may fire prime minister Salam Fayyad , a Fatah member said, as the party criticised the premier’s government as being “improvised and confused.” Abbas “is leaning towards dismissing Fayyad from the head of the government and forming a new one,” a member of Fatah’s Revolutionary Council told AFP late on Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity. “I am angrier than all of you at the government... but I don’t want to say more than that now. Just wait for three days,” he quoted Abbas as saying at a meeting of the council in Ramallah. He said the key factor was disagreement over the resignation of the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority’s finance minister, which Abbas refused to accept but which Fayyad , a US-educated economist, agreed to. Nabil Qassis, a former president of the Bir Zeit university near Ramallah who joined the government in May 2012, announced on March 2 that he was resigning, without giving a reason. Abbas was abroad at the time. “Abbas informed Fayyad that if Nabil Qassis did not return to the finance ministry... Abbas would dismiss his government and form a new one,” the official said. The Revolutionary Council - one of the secular Fatah’s governing bodies - also officially criticised Fayyad’s government for the first time on Friday. “The policies of the current Palestinian government are improvised and confused in many issues of finance and the economy,” it said in a statement.
