DMC-Likud Coalition Strengthens Begin's Hand at Home, Abroad

(Continued from Page 1)

Knesset votes on subjects
concerning the West Bank
Government decisions on
new settlements will be dis-
cussed in the Knesset's For-
eign Affairs and Security
Committee if a DMC min-
ister so demands. The DMC
is given freedom to vote as
it chooses on religious
issues. - •
_ In that connection,' Begin
reassured a deputation from
his ultra-Orthodox Agauda
bloc coalition partners that
the agreement with the
DMC will not affect the con-
cessions he made to them
on religious matters.
A compromise was also'
reached on electoral reform
where the key issue separa-

won in the May elections. --
The DMC decision repre-
sents a major political vic-
tory fOr Begin whose coali-
tion with the small religious
factions controls only 63
,Knesset seats, a pre-
cariously slim majority iii
the 120-member parliainent.
The addition of the DMC's
15 seats to the coalition for
a total of 78 will strengthen
Begin's hand in both domes-
tic and foreign policy.
The agreement with the
DMC represented a corn-
promise --on basic issues
over whicli there are still
wide gaps. It allows the
DMC freedom of expression
and the right to abstain in

ting the DMC and Likud had
been the number of election
districts to be created once
Israel switches from the
present party lists system to
direct election rA Knesset
Members.
The agreement stipulates
that a five-man committee
will be formed lo decide on
the number of districts—
between six and sixteen—
and Will submit its recom-
mendations within a speci-
fied time limit. It was also
agreed that the next Knes-
set elections will be con-
ducted under the new
system,
The DMC Council, after a
stormy session, designated
the four men who will serve
jn the Cabinet posts to be
allocated to it. They are
Yadin, 60, deputy premier;
Meir Amit, 56, former head
of Histadrut's Koor
Industries and a former
Labor Pary member, min-
ister of transportation and
communications ; Shmuel
Tamir, 54, who once headed
the Free Center faction in
. the Knesset, minister of kis-
Lice; and Dr. Israel Katz,
50, a Vienna-born Columbia
. University graduate, min-
ister of social betterment.
Meanwhile, the Likud
Knesset faction announced
that two ministers-without-
portfolio would be added to
the Cabinet, Moshe Nissim
of the Liberal Party and

Chaim Landau of the Herut
wing of Likud.
Prof. Yossef Rom, chair-
man of the Likud committee
on government, explained
that the two additional min-
isters were needed to main-
tain the ratio of approx-
imately one minister for
every four coalition mem-
bers of the Knesset. With
the addition of the DMC, the,
coalition will consist of 78
MKs and the Cabinet will
number 19 ministers.
The coalition agreement
contains provisions for the
reorganization and consoli-
dation of several ministries
and assignments of
authority.
The Labor Ministry': the
Welfare Ministry and the
Institute for Social Insur-
ance will be combined into a
single Ministry of Labor and
Social Betterment. The min-
istries of transportation and
communications will also be
consolidated in a single por-
tfolio and the Ministry of
Health will be abolished

Dayan Criticized-

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—The
newspaper Ha'aretz has
been sniping at Foreign
MiniSter Moshe Dayan in
recent Aveeks, reminding
readers that Dayan pre-
dicted in February that
Isrel and Egypt would
exchange ambassadors
within a year.
The paper- is ridiculing
Dayan' for hiS recent state-
ment that there is no imme-
diate threat of war in the
Middle East.

after the Knesset passes a
national health bill later this
year. Its functions will be
incorporated into the Min-
istry of Labor and Social
Betterment.
The agreement states that
the deputy premier will pre-
side over the ministerial
committee on labor and
social benefit and will
coordinate social - welfare
activities.
Begin asked Yadin to
delay appointing deputy
ministers until a decision is
reached by the full coalition
on that subject. Begin
apparently fears an excess
of deputy ministers. There
are presently four but if the
DMC appoints its own and
Likud follows suit there
would be as many as 11.
The Knesset voted 62-34
Monday night to approve ._
the new coalition govern-
ment. The vote followed a
41/2-hour debate in which
Begin described the new
coalition as based on the
largest majority since the
national unity government
of Golda Meir.
The debate was bitter,
with Labor charging that
the -DMC had sold-out its
principles.
Akiva Noff of the DMC
replied angrily that his

party has already effected
an important change by
ousting the Labor govern-
ment. Yehuda Ben Meir of
the National ReligiouS
Party urged Labor to
detach itself from Mapam
and join the coalition.
