ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how political setup shaped up in Israel after its prime minister Ariel Sharon died due to a massive stroke. There was no state funeral, no national catharsis and no clear transfer of power. But the most important thing was that there was no political confusion or panic. Leadership was quietly assumed by Sharon's deputy, Ehud Olmert.
