This morning an Israeli broadcast reported that a meeting between the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the head of the Kadima Party Shaul Mofaz, is expected to be held today. The meeting is in an attempt to prevent the withdrawal of the Kadima from the Israeli coalition after a cut off lasted for two days.
Mofaz refused to meet with Netanyahu unless the recommendations of the Plesner Committee, which has advised ways to achieve equality in the performance of the military and civil service.
Sources from Mofaz's office said that there is no promise of meeting with Netanyahu if he refused the committee's recommendations.
Yet, if Netanyahu accepts the basic principles that the committee proposed, then the Kadima will stay in the coalition and will be able to work to create legislation to replace Tal law.
The Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, and Netanyahu's chief of staff, Natan Eshel, made an effort to resolve the differences between Netanyahu and Mofaz.
The committee was supposed to publish its recommendations today at 10 a.m. despite Netanyahu's decision to dissolve it.
The Deputy Chairman of Kadima party, Yohanan Plesner said that the issues would be presented openly and will be decided in the arena of public opinion.
