The Palestinian government is the government of the State of Palestine. The ruling power was split into two separate administrations. The first was the Fatah-dominated Palestinian government of 2013, which rules the West Bank areas A and B and is generally referred to as the Palestinian Authority. The other was the Hamas government of 2012, which was ruling the Gaza Strip. On September 25, 2014, Hamas agreed to let the Palestinian Authority resume control over the Gaza Strip and its border crossings with Egypt and Israel.
The following organizations have claimed or executed authority over the people in the past:
- Arab Higher Committee, the central political organ of the Arab community of Mandatory Palestine. It was established on 25 April 1936 and sidestepped by the All-Palestine Government in 1948.
- All-Palestine Government, a Palestinian entity set-up by the Arab League in Egyptian occupied Gaza Strip on September 22, 1948. It was dissolved by Egypt in 1959.
- Palestine Liberation Organization, the official representative of the Palestinian people before the international community from 1964 until it was transformed into Palestinian Authority in 1993.
Palestinian National Authority is an interim administrative body established by the PLO pursuant to the Oslo Accords of 1993, which exercises limited control of populated areas of the West Bank. Listed below are the executive organs of the PNA cabinets:
- Palestinian government of October 2002 (PNA)
- Palestinian government of November 2003 (PNA)
- Palestinian government of March 2006 (PNA)
- Palestinian government of March 2007 (PNA, unity of Hamas and Fatah)
Split of Fatah and Hamas
Since June 2007, the Fatah government has exercised authority in Ramallah, West Bank, and has been recognized as the official government of the Palestinian National Authority, while the Hamas administration took control in the Gaza Strip, and exercised control of that territory after it ousted Fatah PNA representatives in 2007.
