Let the Negotiations Continue

As of today, the negotiations behind the scenes for who will hold the Israeli Finance Portfolio continue full strength.

So that today, Tourism Minister Avraham Hirchson, who is also the chairman of the Knesset Finance Committee - and a contender for the Finance Portfolio in a Kadima led government - announced publicly that now Olmert is not ruling out giving Peretz - or anyone else - the finance portfolio in a coalition agreement.

Just another negotiation stance until the depressing business is concluded.

Meanwhile, Labor MK Binyamin Ben Eliezer voices the position of Labor with respect to the Finance Portfolio.
Labor MK Binyamin Ben Eliezer said Saturday that the finance portfolio was more important than the defense portfolio. "Security is society," Ben Eliezer told Israel Radio, and therefore, he added, Labor would do everything possible to receive the finance portfolio and fulfill its campaign promises.
