Hasan Asfour, a member of Fateh, served as minister of state (without portfolio) from August 1998 and then became minister of non-governmental organization affairs from 1999. His appointment to this position was not presented to the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) for approval and therefore the exact nature of the role was unclear. He lost his position in cabinet in June 2002. He was an independent PLC member for Khan Younis.
