Mahmoud Abbas says he won`t run for re-election

This is the first time Abbas has said clearly he won`t seek another term.



Ramallah: The Palestinian president said
Wednesday he won`t run for re-election.

This is the first time Mahmoud Abbas has said
explicitly he won`t seek another term.

In a speech today to political allies, Abbas also said
he is willing to travel to the Gaza Strip to promote
reconciliation between the feuding Palestinian territories and
form a united government.

Abbas` plan includes new elections within six months.
But he says he wouldn`t run for president again.

However, it`s not clear that elections will be held
because Abbas says they cannot take place if the West Bank and
Gaza don`t reunite.
