Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad resigned on Saturday after a weeks-long falling out with president Mahmud Abbas, despite US efforts for him to stay on.
A planned meeting between Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas, PM Salam Fayyad to try to resolve a damaging dispute has been postponed until at least next week.
Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has prepared a letter of resignation which he will submit to President Mahmud Abbas, a senior Palestinian official said.
The Palestinian self-rule government is close to being "completely incapacitated," largely because of Arab countries.
Fayyad said he hoped that the whole amount, meant to support development projects, would be released.
The Palestinian Prime Minister says he wants to drastically reduce his government`s reliance on foreign aid next year.
Officials said that they won`t be able to pay the next round of public sector salaries.
Hamas` objection could also compromise foreign support for the Palestinian Authority.
The shake-up could boost the standing of the President among Palestinians dissatisfied with cabinet.
Palestinian PM Fayyad said uprisings could happen in other Arab countries.
