Acting Finance Minister Ehud Olmert expressed support Tuesday night for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's linking of his nomination to the Finance Ministry in a permanent capacity with the ministerial appointments of MKs Roni Bar-On and Ze'ev Boim. The connection, Olmert said, was "very natural." His current ministerial positions, including the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the chairmanship of the Israel Broadcast Authority, would have to be distributed among other MKs if he was to become Finance Minister. For this reason, he concluded, his nomination could not be separated from that of the other MKs.
