Coalition chairman Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) on Thursday defended his record on the issue of Ulpana, saying that though he did not support Netanyahu's decision to evacuate the outpost, he acted consistently and transparently.

"I was worried that the Ulpana residents would end up in a situation similar to that faced by those who were evacuated from their homes in Gush Katif," Elkin told Army Radio.
