Who was sworn in as the New Prime Minister of Palestine?

[A]. Mahmoud Abbas
[B]. Rami Hamdallah
[C]. Mohammed Ishtaye
[D]. Reuven Rivlin

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Palestine's New Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtayeh, a veteran peace negotiator and harsh critic of Gaza's Hamas rulers, and his 22-member cabinet took the oath of office a second time, on April 14, 2019. The ministers neglected to include a clause pledging faithfulness "to the people and its national heritage" during ceremony on April 13. The 18th Palestinian government since the establishment of the Palestinian Authority in 1995 was sworn in according to a presidential decree issued by Mahmoud Abbas. The new Cabinet replaces a technocratic government formed by Rami Hamdallah in 2014 after an agreement between Fatah and Hamas, the Islamic militant group that has run the Gaza Strip after ousting Fatah and evicting the Palestinian Authority in 2007.
