Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has accepted the resignation of his newly appointed prime minister.
Abbas' spokesman said Sunday the president has asked Rami Hamdallah's to stay on in a caretaker role until a replacement prime minister can be found. Hamdallah abruptly resigned last week over a conflict with his deputies.
The prime minister served just two weeks on the job, disheveling the Palestinian Authority at a time when Abbas is focusing on a U.S. push to restart peace talks with Israel.
