Palestinian Succession: Crisis or Opportunity?
Palestinian leadership is in crisis. As speculation mounts about Mahmoud Abbas’s rule coming to an end, Hussein al-Sheikh continues to assume many of his responsibilities.

Al-Shabaka policy analysts Leila Farsakh and Ahmad Khalidi join us for a discussion with host Nadim Bawalsa about these unfolding developments in Palestinian leadership.
