The term

The Arabic term ra'ees or ra'is (رئيس) can be translated to English as either "president" or "chairman". As the status of Palestine as a political entity is controversial, the use of the term "President" to describe the leader of the Palestinian government is controversial to some, as its use may be seen to imply a recognition of state sovereignty. The use of the term "Chairman" is controversial for the opposite reason -- its use may be seen to imply denial of Palestinian aspirations for statehood.

The Arabic term was used in the English text of the 1995 Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip [2], part of the Oslo accords which established the PNA. In practice, when referring to the ra'ees in English documents and statements, the PNA uses the term "president", whereas Israel uses "chairman". 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The United States, in its role as peace broker, uses several different terms according to context. News releases from its embassy in Israel refer to the PNA "chairman"; press briefings in Washington use "president"; both occasionally avoid the issue with "Palestinian leader". The international English-language press mostly (but not always) follows the Palestinian terminology. Israeli press simply refers to the leader by name alone.

However, he never formally assumed the title. New elections were held in January 2005, and won by Mahmoud Abbas.
