Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert spoke to Kadima's candidates for ministerial portfolios in a prospective Kadima-led government on Monday and asked them not to deal with the issue before the March 28 election. If he wins the race, Olmert is expected to have a difficult time assigning portfolios because there are at least 16 Kadima officials who expect to be ministers. The list includes ten current Kadima ministers, deputy minister Marina Solodkin, former ministers Shimon Peres, Dalia Itzik and Haim Ramon, and new candidates Avi Dichter and Uriel Reichman. "I didn't promise anyone anything," Olmert said, according to one of the candidates. "We need to treat the election with respect and that means focusing solely on winning."
