Palestinians Weigh Calls for Successor to Mahmoud Abbas


abbasAs PA President Mahmoud Abbas turns 79 in less than a month, Palestinians are broaching the sensitive topic of who will succeed him.

The PA’s ruling Fatah movement has held discussions on creating an office of vice-president to establish a clear successor.

“All of the world’s leaders have deputy presidents, vice-presidents; we can’t be the only country in the world that doesn’t have a number two,” said Tawfiq Tirawi, a member of Fatah’s central committee.

  1. Abbas is the primadonna of the palestinian cause who might even think he dances higher than primadonna Arafat. There is no time for regression when human affairs are costly. This is a good thing if he is gone in a year or two.
