MK Meir Porush (Agudat Yisrael) announced Wednesday that he intended to vote against the appointments of new ministers in Monday's vote, even though he is a member of the coalition. He said that the "prime minister did not fulfill his promise to establish a new committee that would define independent haredi education as separate from state education, despite the passing of nine months since [Agudat Yisrael] signed a coalition agreement with the Likud." Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was set to meet on Wednesday with Leah Ness and on Thursday with Gilad Erdan and Haim Katz. Sharon will also meet on Wednesday with two former allies in the cabinet who turned against him recently, Education Minister Limor Livnat and Health Minister Dan Naveh, in order to ensure a majority for the vote on the appointments and prevent early elections.
