The Palestinian government is the government of the State of Palestine. The ruling power is split into two separate administrations. The first is Fatah-dominated Palestinian government of 2013, which had been ruling the West Bank areas A and B and had been generally related as the legal representative of the State of Palestine (and previously, the Palestinian National Authority); from 2013 it is officially referred as the Government of the State of Palestine.
