Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat may delay a reshuffle of his Cabinet until the beginning of July, according to a senior Palestinian official. Palestinian lawmakers, who gave Arafat until June 25 to reorganize his Cabinet, have been demanding for several months that he form a new Cabinet in order to root out corruption. Arafat unsuccessfully tried to lure Hamas and Islamic Jihad into his government last week.
