Olmert to make 'personal announcement' at 8:00 Wednesday

Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert will make a 'personal announcement' at 8:00 Wednesday night Israel time - a bit more than an hour from now. Speculation is that he will either announce his resignation or that he will not run in the Kadima party primary in September.

Tellingly, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who is currently in Washington, announced that she will be holding an unscheduled press conference two and a half hours after Olmert's.
Oh, please let it be true!

Carl - you don't have inside info as to what Ehud Olmert will actually say? I wouldn't let anything get past him - and whatever he says he's not going to do it because he was compelled by his conscience to do it. We know for a fact he has none!

Can this be related to his cancer surgery?

Israel Radio's correspondent actually disclosed what Olmert was going to say right before the 8:00 news. That's why - if you watched closely - you saw that my 'liveblog' actually had the first paragraph of the post up before the speech ever started.


The radio speculated about that last night, but if it's true Olmert's not saying.
