RAMALLAH (AFP) - Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad is to present his resignation to president Mahmud Abbas, an official said. Abbas and Fayyad are known to have been at odds over a raft of issues but their relationship took a nose dive last month when Fayyad accepted his finance minister’s resignation only for it to be rejected by Abbas. “There will be a meeting between Abbas and Fayyad after the president returns (from Qatar) to settle Fayyad’s resignation,” Azzam al-Ahmed, a Fatah member told Voice of Palestine radio. Earlier, a Palestinian official said on condition of anonymity that Fayyad had prepared a resignation letter on Mar 23, but had delayed handing it over because Abbas had been out of the country.
