Mapam Boycotts Coalition Policy Talks

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The five ,
parties in the outgoing national ;
coalition government met for five
hours Monday night to try to ham-
mer out a common policy on for-
eign and domestic issues that will
guide the new coalition whenever
it is formed.
They spent about half the titre
arguing over procedure. But no
changes were proposed in the pre-
sent coalition platform dealing
with foreign affairs and security.
The interparty talks were boy
cotted by Mapam, the junior part-
ner in the Labor alignment. Ma-
pam, which is Marxist oriented
and takes a conciliatory line to-
ward the Arabs, has refused to
join a coalition with the rightist,
hard-line Gahal (Herut-Liberal
alignment) based on a common
platform.
So far, Mapam has resisted La-
bor Party:- pressure to back down.
There is talk in both Labor Party
and Mapam circles that the best
solution would be for Mapam to
withdraw from the political align-
ment with Labor which was form-
ed earlier this year. In that event,
Mapam would be excluded from
the new coalition.

Some Labor Party members,
however, are finding it difficult
to accept Gahal's demands for
changes in the economic and
social policies of the outgoing
coalition. Gahal submitted a
lengthy document prop o s i n g,
among other things, the com-
pulsory arbitration of labor dis-
putes and a new national health
insurance scheme. In addition
to Labor and Gahal, the other
factions represented at Monday
night's meetings were the Na-
tional Religious Party, the In-
dependent Liberals and the
Poalei Agudat Israel.

Meanwhile, the Labor alignment
managed to retain the mayorship
of Tel Aviv, Israel's largest city,
by agreeing to concessions de-1
manded by the National Religious
Party, which will be its coalition
partner. The NRP will get the
posts of acting mayor and de utv
mayor and will be given control
of several municipal departments.
In addition; life in Tel Aviv will

be made to conform, at least out-
wardly, to Orthodox
religious
practice. The planetarium will be

no public shows on that day, and
even private shows will not be
permitted to

ances taking place on Friday
nights. The museum and the zoo'
will be open on Saturdays, but
ticket selling will be prohibited,
and admission will be free.
The Laborites also agreed to in-
crease the municipal allocation to
the Tel Aviv Religious Council and
raise the budget of the religious

school system. The Labor align-
ment "paid the price" in order to
prevent the NRP from joining a
coalition with Gahal, which would
have excluded Labor from the city
government.
Earlier, a three-judge panel of

Israel's Supreme Court rejected
unanimously an application by
the attorney general to cancel a
temporary injunction barring
Premier Golda Meir from ban-
ning television programs on the
Sabbath.

The issue has political elements
because the National Religious
Party had announced that its entry
into the coalition government Mrs.
Meir is trying to form would de-
pend on such a ban.
The three-man panel—Justices
Moshe Landau, Zvi Susman and
Zvi Berenson—bypassed the ques-
tion as to whether an injunction
granted on a Sabbath is legal.
The justices ruled that the ques-
tion was not relevant to the main

issue and trerefore did not need
consideration in the ruling.

The government was ordered tc
pay costs of 300 pounds to the at-
torney who: obtained the original

temporary order. The panel also
granted another application for an
order calling on Labor Minister
Joseph Almogi to explain the

The next order of business will
be the election of nine permanent

and composition of each commit-
