Sharon opposes nationwide referendum on ''disengagement plan''
Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is still opposed to a nationwide referendum on his so-called "disengagement plan", his spokesman said Sunday after Sharon met with Education Minister Limor Livnat to discuss a compromise proposal on the matter.
"He [Sharon] heard Limor Livnat's proposal and he is still determined not to hold a referendum," said his spokesman Asaf Shariv after Sharon met with his education minister.
Livnat's proposal is for Sharon to agree to an unwanted referendum on the plan to pull-out from the entire Gaza Strip and parts of the northern West Bank, on the condition that the "settlement movement" will agree to abide by the results of the poll. (Albawaba.com)
