Palestinian sources claim: Abu Mazen has chosen Muhammad Mustafa as the next Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority in the place of Muhammad Ashtia who recently submitted his resignation.

Mustafa, an economist by profession, is a member of the PLO’s working committee and is responsible for its economic department. He also serves as the chairman of the Palestinian Investment Fund and served in the past as Deputy Prime Minister of the PLO government and its minister of economy (until he resigned in 2015).
According to these sources, this move was approved by the United States and several Arab countries, and its announcement is expected to take place during the month of Ramadan.
