The official spokesperson of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) stated the following:

The formation of a government of national unity based on a program of common political denominators represents a step along the correct path. At this time our people aspire to end the insecurity, internal discord, to break the blockade and the wars of starvation.

The unity government was therefore established a means to overcoming the agreement on quotas made between Al-Fatah and Hamas regarding the ministries and bilateral committees, advancing toward a national agreement that led to the following:

- An agreement on the formation of a new political program united with the government, based on the National Agreement Document, the resolutions of the Arab Summits and International Law.

- Changes and modifications regarding the distribution of the ministerial portfolios that were distributed bilaterally among Al-Fatah and Hamas.

- An agreement on the creation of a reduced Ministerial Council based on collective political partnership regarding the taking of national decisions.

- To transform all committees (political, economic, security, etc), from bilateral ones to committees of universal national participation.

- To create a united resistance front by virtue of the National Agreement Document and to continue the work of the five-party committee, formed by the resistance organizations in charge of the matters of security.

- To continue the work of the Office of the five-party committee (Al-Fatah, Hamas, Democratic Front, Popular Front and Islamic Jihad), to stop the information campaigns that lead to the conflicts within the Palestinian movement.
