Former chief of General Staff and Minister Lt.-Gen. (res.) Amnon Lipkin-Shahak submited proposals to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Wednesday calling for a widespread restructuring of the Prime Minister's Office that include significantly strengthening the National Security Council's (NSC) authority. In May, immediately after the Winograd Committee released its interim findings on the Second Lebanon War, Olmert appointed Shahak to head a committee the cabinet established to formulate a "detailed plan to implement" the Winograd panel's recommendations. According to the Government Press Office, Olmert thanked the committee members for their work. Dr. Yoram Turbowicz was appointed by the prime minister to coordinate the committee's recommendations. Olmert ordered that the government submit to the Knesset a draft legislation entailing the responsibilities and status of the NSC as has been specified by the Shahak Committee.
