    Hebrew Sof



    SOF:"Good evening, I would like to explain to you what happened in the Knesset today. I notified the Knesset about my resignation......according to our laws the resignation of the Prime Minister is the resignation of the Cabinet.......at present the government, Cabinet is a caretaker government.........I urged today the Knesset to bring about early elections. I believe the best way to overcome the crisis is by early election I am glad that practically all the major parties is the Knesset are for this step......I expect in the coming weeks efforts will be done to bring about a law.....according to which the Knesset is disperse and a new date set for elections.....after having the kind of crisis that we have has I see no way but by new elections. I hope in a relatively short period......well have a new Knesset and a new cabinet....in the meantime. "(cut in middle sentence



    "we continue to be as they were in the last 2 1/2 years.......am sure a caretaker government can perform whatever is needed Reporter:"........the leader of the opposition today called on you not to go to the US.........do you plan to go?"



    SOF:"...I have no intention to carry out & to discharge my duties but in accordance to my conscience & the responsibility of the Prime Minister." "I believe that in Israel if a government can be responsible for the defence of the country there is no higher responsibility. "REP:"So you still plan to go?" "I didn't say that" "....well thank you"
