The Defense, Education, Infrastructure, Tourism and Agriculture portfolios will go to Labor, as will two Cabinet positions without portfolio. The party’s central committee will meet on Sunday to decide which method will be used to choose the candidates for the ministries.



The agreement stipulates, among other things, that the government will move “to shape the permanent borders of the state as a Jewish state with a democratic majority” and promises that “the territory of the Israeli settlement in Judea and Samaria” will be “reduced”.



The agreement also outlines the negotiation process on permanent borders to be carried out with the Palestinian Authority, specifying it must be carried out on the basis of the previously agreed-upon Road Map plan. It also states, “If the Palestinians do not act in accordance with these conditions in the near term, the government will also take action in the absence of negotiations and an agreement with them, on the basis of a broad national agreement within Israel and a deep understanding with Israel’s friends abroad, chief among them the United States and President George W. Bush."



Educational reforms coordinated with the teachers’ unions, an expansion of the health basket and a slight increase in the minimum wage were also approved. The agreement also mandates the creation of a detailed anti-poverty program, as well as the establishment of a committee to look at socioeconomic issues. All parties agreed to keep the status quo in the status of the Supreme Court and how judges are appointed.
