GAZA, May 27 (Xinhua) -- A senior Palestinian official in Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party said on Friday that the national unity government is to be formed in ten days.

Nabil Shaath, a member of Fatah's Central Committee, told a news conference in Gaza following a meeting with leaders of Islamic Hamas movement that a technocrat Palestinian government is to be formed in ten days.

"The meeting was positive and we stressed on implementing the reconciliation agreement signed in Cairo on May 4, and as the result of the agreement, the government will be formed," Shaath told reporters.

Fatah and Hamas agreed to form a interim government, restructure the security forces and reform Palestine Liberation Organization, according the reconciliation deal.

"Two weeks after forming the government, the Palestinian parliament will convene and several committees will be formed in order to carry out the agreement," said Shaath, who arrived at Gaza on Thursday. However, he declined to reveal the candidates in the upcoming new government.

Meanwhile, Shaath said that he will hold talks with the deposed prime minister of Hamas government Ismail Henya, adding that "I will meet with Haneya Sunday."

Shaath also revealed that he decided to stay in Gaza. "I came to renovate and paint my house and I will bring my family to Gaza next week," he said.
