orthodox Poale Agudah Labor
faction and four pro-Mapai Arab
members of the Knesset, it was

Yosef Alargi, and Shimon Peres,
deputy defense minister, who
reported formation of the bloc
to Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion. The newly formed bloc
has a total of 48 seats in the
Knesset, as against an aggregate
of 46 seats held by the "Club
