Palestinian PM Fayyad seen at risk to new Fatah | World | Reuters

Fayyad has no significant power base of his own but is popular for his grass-roots engagement. Hamas would welcome his removal at any time. They consider him an obstacle to dialogue because of his security crackdown on Hamas in the West Bank.

Fayyad’s government has made progress in key areas. Public finance, once in chaos, is now up to international standards, he says. There is also better security in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, with U.S.-backed police helping curb crime and persuade Israel to ease some restrictions on movement.
