      ‘Construction Not an Elections Ploy’


      Approval of new construction projects in the Jerusalem area is not an elections ploy, Minister Silvan Shalom of Likud said Wednesday.

      “You can make anything out to be planned, political and provocative,” he told IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal). “What we have here are planning committees that finished their work, authorized, and publicized where they were required to do so.”
