Livni faces coalition demands after slim win - Middle East, World - The Independent

The potentially pivotal ultra-orthodox party Shas immediately laid down tough financial and political terms for remaining in a government led by Ms Livni. She defeated the former military chief of staff Shaul Mofaz for the party leadership by just 431 votes.

While making it clear to Ms Livni he accepted the result of Wednesday's contest, Mr Mofaz confounded claims that he would seek a senior post in her government by saying that he did not want a ministerial or parliamentary post. He would instead find "additional ways to contribute to the state of Israel and my family."

(A plague on both houses, is my opinion)
