First meeting of new cabinet to discuss budget

Sunday morning's weekly cabinet meeting will mark the first meeting of the newly-established government. The meeting's agenda includes approval of the annual state budget. Also on Sunday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will begin to work in the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem for the first time since the incapacitation of former prime minister Ariel Sharon. Olmert remained in the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor out of respect for Sharon in the run-up to the March elections.
