PA official says Abbas told newspapers not to publish congratulations on the formation of the new government

Headline: "President [Abbas] asks not to publish congratulatory [notices] to new government"
"The government Secretary-General, Na'im Abu Al-Humus, said that President Mahmoud Abbas had instructed all local newspapers and asked them not to publish congratulatory [notices] upon the establishment of the 14th Palestinian government, after the ministers took their oath of allegiance before him last night."

Note: PMW can confirm that the official PA daily reported on the formation of the new PA government, but did not publish any congratulatory notices. This lends corroborates the fact that the media in the PA is government-controlled.
