Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz on Sunday agreed to form a special team to draft universal service legislation based on the Plesner Committee's recommendations.

The team will be headed by Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud) and MK Yohanan Plesner (Kadima). Also set to participate in the team's process will be representatives of the Defense, Finance and Justice ministries, as well as of the National Service Administration.

The Prime Minister's Office said the proposal was expected for presentation at the next cabinet meeting, presumably next week.
