Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman agreed on Friday to uphold changes in the structure of the next government. From the start of the upcoming Knesset session, the two parties would promote legislation to change the system of government in Israel and to create a constitution for the state. Science and Sport Minister Ophir Pines-Paz rejected the proposed change, saying that "direct elections were a big failure and its results were the opposite of its goals. The problem isn't the governmental system but the political culture in Israel. A presidential system without a constitution can be dangerous."
