Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad dissolved his Cabinet and will form a new government.

Monday’s announcement comes two days after a decision by PA President Mahmoud Abbas to hold presidential and legislative elections by September. Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat also resigned his position over the fallout of more than 1,600 leaked internal memos detailing negotiating sessions with Israel.

The moves come following popular democracy revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia that resulted in the resignations of the presidents of both countries.

Abbas asked Fayyad to form a new Cabinet with “the broadest representation possible” of Palestinian political movements, said government spokesman Ghassan Khatib, according to The Wall Street Journal.
