Leader of Israel's Shinui party, Yosef Lapid, said Tuesday that Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Likud leader, Ariel Sharon, have agreed to accept a plan he presented to them for the formation of an emergency government, reported Haaretz newspaper, quoting Israel's radio.
Lapid pointed out, however, that both men still had certain reservations about his six-point proposal for forming the emergency government, and that they would only meet to discuss joining forces after Tuesday's vote on the opposition-sponsored bill to disband the Knesset.
Shinui party said it will wait until the last moment before deciding how to vote on the bill to disband the Knesset, Haaretz added.
Lapid presented the paper to Barak late Monday during a brief meeting between the two, Haaretz said - Albawaba.com
