The settlers who were evacuated from Gush Katif during August's disengagement wrote a letter to Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Wednesday requesting he leave Yonatan Bassi as the head of the Disengagement Authority (Sela). Lior Kalfa, formerly the head of the Neve Dekalim Council, sent the letter. He told Army Radio that the settlers' rehabilitation had only just begun and that the process would be set back if Bassi leaved Sela. Bassi refused to say whether he would decide to stay in his current position, but said that while the job required two more years, he did not intend to stay that long.
