Labor Party headquarters decided on Thursday evening to demand appointing Ghaleb Majadle as a minister without a portfolio during the next cabinet meeting, Sunday.
The identity of Majadle's ministry would be determined in the coming two weeks.
The Labor Central committee approved Majadle to become Culture and Sports Minister the previous week.
The committee issued an ultimatum on Saturday saying that if Majadle's appointment would not be discussed during the following cabinet meeting, the faction would consider leaving the government.
