Former Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy agreed to rejoin Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government. The premier sought Levy’s return to strengthen his position before attempting to create a national unity government, political observers said. Cabinet ministers Ariel Sharon, Natan Sharansky and Ya’acov Ne’eman are backing the formation of such a government with the opposition Labor Party. Ne’eman said he would step down as finance minister if that would facilitate negotiations with Labor.
