Olmert suggests two alternative coalition options

Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert presented Kadima with two alternative options for possible coalitions: Either broad-based or narrow. The narrow option consisted of the inclusion of Israel Beiteinu instead of Labor, according to Israel Radio. The broad-based option included Labor, Shas, United Torah Judaism, Israel Beiteinu and the Pensioners' Party. Olmert assessed the chances of forming the latter coalition were low.
