Israel's 31st government sworn in

The 17th Knesset voted on Thursday to approve Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's government. 65 MKs supported the government, while 49 opposed and 6 were absent from the plenum...... The new government includes ministers from Kadima, Labor, Shas and the Pensioners party. As of now, United Torah Judaism and Israel Our Home will take up the opposition benches. Olmert expressed hope earlier Thursday that UTJ and Meretz would join the coalition in the future.
