Meretz deliberated on Sunday whether they should stress in their election campaign that the party did not rule out joining Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's coalition. Party Chairman told Israeli Radio that Meretz would like to be in the next government even if Sharon heads it. He noted that joining such a coalition would not require that the government adopt all of Meretz's principles, but he would insist that diplomacy between Israel and the Palestinians resume, and that a sincere war against poverty be engaged. MK Zehava Gal-On said that Meretz must appeal to its electorate before it makes a decision in the matter.
