Netanyahu released a statement Tuesday morning officially calling upon likud ministers to quit the cabinet by Sunday. "Netanyahu believes the likud must present an alternative to Sharon's plans to continue with unilateral withdrawals that will endanger Israel," the statement read. Health minister Dan Naveh accepted Netanyahu's decision. He said that he thought that the Likud should remain in the government, but because Netanyahu decided, the party should unify behind his decision and not act against it. Likud central committee members loyal to Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and Education Minister Limor Livnat, are trying to convene the committee to bypass Netanyahu's decision. Shalom, who is second on the Likud list, said that Netanyahu would "bear the responsibility for his decision," meaning that if it causes the Likud to fall in support, Netanyahu would be blamed for it.
