Yishai to unveil Shas' socio-economic plan

Shas party chairman Eli Yishai is unveiling Tuesday a social-economic plan that he recently drafted. Shas sources say that if Prime Minister Ariel Sharon adopts the plan, the party will help with passage of the state budget before the March elections, Israel Radio reported. The sources said that if the plan is rejected by the prime minister, but supported by other politicians, Shas might be inclined to back the initiative to oust the prime minister with the creation of an alternative coalition.
