Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat began discussions about forming a new Cabinet. Hamas officials, who were to be part of the discussions, said their meeting with Arafat had been postponed. Meanwhile, a poll of Palestinians indicated that some 65 percent of the respondents believe their political institutions are corrupt. Support for the peace process dropped by five points, to 62 percent, since the last poll was conducted by the Center for Palestine Research and Studies in March.
