Israel's Labor Party agrees to remain in coalition
despite addition of extreme-right party
Israel's Labor Party led by Defense Minister Amir Peretz voted on Sunday to stay in Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's coalition government, despite his intention to add an extreme-right party into it.
During a three-hour meeting of vehement debate, the Labor, a key partner in Olmert's coalition, decided to support party leader Peretz's decision to stay in the government to influence policy instead of moving back to be opposition, local media reported.
The decision paves the way for Olmert to add Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beiteinu party into the government to ensure enough support in important parliamentary votes, including the 2007 budget.
The government would collapse if the budget failed to be passed by March.
Olmert's original coalition had a majority of 67 seats in the 120-seat parliament, but several lawmakers from the Labor Party threatened to vote against the budget, disrupting the equation.
Yisrael Beiteinu would bring 11 Knesset (parliament) seats into the coalition, making the Olmert government control 78 of 120 parliamentary seats.
On Oct. 23, Olmert and Lieberman signed an agreement on the party's joining the coalition, which was seen as Olmert's efforts to bolster his shaky six-month-old government.
Olmert planned to appoint Lieberman as one of his deputy prime ministers to deal with "strategic threats against Israel".
Lieberman, 48, has long taken a tough line toward the Palestinians as well as Israel's own Arab minority.
