Sheetrit presents letter creating new party

Meir Sheetrit presented Knesset House Committee Chairman Roni Bar-On with the official letter announcing the creation of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's new political party on Tuesday afternoon. The letter listed 14 members of "National Responsibility." Bar-On commented that although the party's name may change in the next two days, "we will always have national responsibility." He promised to treat the letter as though his name was not on it, although he noted that this was the first time he had written a letter to himself.
