Likud discusses stance ahead of coalition talks

The Likud convened in their Tel Aviv headquarters on Sunday to discuss their position in the coalition talks with Kadima, scheduled for later in the day. MKs Limor Livnat, Yuval Steinitz and Moshe Kahlon told Israel Radio that the chances of Likud joining the coalition were slim, due to Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's insistence on what they viewed as a dangerous diplomatic plan that includes uprooting settlements.
