Saeb Erekat

(1955-) Palestinian political figure. Erekat, a member of the Palestinian party Fatah, has been the chief Palestinian negotiator since 1995, aside from periods of resignation from the post. He was a delegate in the Madrid Conference and played an instrumental role in negotiating the Oslo Accords with Israel. In 1996, he was elected to represent Jericho in the Palestinian Legislative Council. Erekat, Faisal Husseini and Yasser Arafat had appealed to Ariel Sharon not to visit Haram al-Sharif in September 2000, an event that is credited with sparking the Second Intifada. Erekat resigned in 2011 over the Palestine Papers, which were leaked from his office, though he continued functioning as lead negotiator. See "Erekat quits over Palestine Papers" Al Jazeera English, Feb 13, 2011.
