Cabinet Shuffle Averts Crisis Temporarily

By DAVID LANDAU
and GIL SEDAN

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Menahem Begin
succeeded Monday night in
putting together the ele-
ments of a reorganized coal-
ition Cabinet, averting a
government crisis for the
moment.
Under his plan, which the
Cabinet is expected to ap-
prove at its weekly meeting
on Sunday, former Minister
of Commerce Yigal Hurwitz
will replace Simha Ehrlich
as finance minister, Ehrlich
will assume the yet-to-be-
created post of second de-
puty premier and
Minister-Without-Portfolio
Moshe Nissim will become
minister of information, an-
other post that does not now
exist in the Begin govern-
ment.
The sensitive problem of
replacing Moshe Dayan as
foreign minister is being
held in abeyance. Begin an-
nounced that he will con-
tinue to serve temporarily
as foreign minister, the post
he assumed when Dayan
resigned a week ago, and
that he might appoint a de-
puty foreign minister to as-
sist him. The Cabinet re-
shuffle represents an at-
tempt by Begin to balance
the conflicting interests of
the various factions in his
Likud-led coalition.
The impasse was
broken when Ehrlich, a
leader of Likud's Liberal
Party wing, agreed to be-
come second deputy
premier which will make
him junior, albiet unoffi-
cially, to Deputy Premier
Yigael Yadin, leader of
the much smaller Demo-
cratic Movement.
Ehrlich, who said he
planned to resign any-
way in "a week or two,"
accepted reluctantly. He
explained that he was
doing it for the good of

the coalition that other-
wise would be
endangered. His suc-
cessor, Hurwitz, is a
member of the small,
ultra-nationalist Laam
t fiction of Likud. Nissim
belongs to the Liberal
Party.
The new arrangement
will be drafted formally at a
meeting this week between
Begin, Ehrlich, Yadin and
Interior Minister Yosef
Burg of the National Reli-
gious Party. Although
Cabinet approval is ex-
pected, the reshuffle may
run into trouble when it is
presented to the Knesset for
endorsement. A sharp de-
bate is likely but the gov-
ernment's majority is ex-
pected to prevail over oppo-
sition critics.
There are other stumbl-
ing blocks, however. Ac-
cording to the law govern-
ing the Cabinet's structure,
the creation of a second de-
puty pretnier's office re-
quires the approval of a
Knesset majority. Begin
may have difficulty muster-
ing the necessary 61 votes
inasmuch as the Demo-
cratic Movement which con-
trols seven Knesset seats is
not happy with the new ar-
rangement.
Yosef Eliahu, chairman
of its Knesset faction, has
called a special meeting of
his colleagues for today. He
charged that the appoint-
ment of a second deputy
premier would "degrade"
the office of deputy premier
held by Yadin. Ehrlich said
however that if creation of
the new post is delayed, he
would be willing to serve
temporarily as a minister-
without-portfolio. Begin
has already instructed the
government's attorneys to
draft the necessary legisla-
tion.
There are long-range
implications in the proj-

ected Cabinet reshuffle
that could lead to a seri-
ous internal crisis in the
not-too-distant future. If
Begin's plan is im-
plemented, the hawkish
wing of the government
will be strengthened con-
siderably at the expense
of moderates.
Hurwitz is a hard-liner
who quit Begin's Cabinet
last year because he op-
posed the Camp David ac-
cords. When he re-enters
the Cabinet he is expected
to align himself with the
other hawks, Agriculture
Minister Ariel Sharon,
Transport Minister Haim
Landau and Education
Minister Zevulun Hammer
of NRP. Moreover, the ap-
pointment of a foreign
minister cannot be post-
poned indefinitely. At the
moment, the leading candi-
date is believed to be Knes-
set Speaker Yitzhak
Shamir, of Herut, whose
political views are close to
those of Sharon.
Some analysts predicted
that if Shamir is named
