ABSTRACT
The article examines the implication of the decision of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to abandon his Likud Party to create a new centrist party in November 2005. Sharon will have to contend with other Likud officials, including Foreign Affairs Minister Silvan Shalom and Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz-who rejected his offer to join him and 13 other Likud members. At first glance, polls in three Israeli newspapers suggest the Likud leadership battle will be of secondary importance anyway.
