Kadima MK Hasson calls upon Labor members to stay in the government

Kadima MK Yoel Hasson on Wednesday sent a letter to all members of the Labor faction beseeching them to remain in the coalition after the publication of the final Winograd report on the Second Lebanon War, Israel Radio reported. "The Labor party has no reason to quit the government today due to the fact that the Winograd Committee's conclusions are already being implemented," Hasson wrote. "The economy is better than before and even the diplomatic process has emerged from a deep freeze." Hasson reiterated his message and told the faction members not to repeat Binyamin Ben-Eliezer's "mistake" in pulling out of the coalition and causing the dismantling of the Sharon government.
