Thirteen Likud rebels have agreed to vote against Prime Minister Sharon’s new coalition government when he presents it to the Knesset for approval Monday night, Israel Radio reported. The Prime Minister declared that anyone who voted against the new government would be responsible for causing a "disaster" for the country. "Whoever wants to bring about another disaster on Israel, whoever wants to split the Likud faction in opposition to the decision of the central committee, whoever wants to go to elections or to another, less good coalition should vote no-confidence in our government, in the Likud government today," Sharon said. If approved by the Knesset, the coalition agreement with the Labor Party and United Torah Judaism would keep Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in power until the next elections that are scheduled for November 2006.
