JERUSALEM, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- After being the first to sign and join the upcoming government of Israel, leader of the Movement party Tzipi Livni convened her party on Wednesday and updated them on the agreement, local media reported.
At the start of the meeting held in the Knesset (parliament) on Wednesday, Livni said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu committed to adhere to all of the terms she presented to him during the coalition-building negotiations.
"The central issue for us would be the peace process with Palestinians," Livni said.
Livni shared the details of the coalition agreement between the Likud Beytenu and her party, which received seven seats in the Knesset in the Jan. 22 elections.
According to the agreement, Livni would become the Justice minister and another minister from her party would accept the Environmental Protection portfolio. Another member of the party will head a Knesset committee.
Livni, as promised, would also be in charge of the contacts with the Palestinians.
On Tuesday evening, Livni and Netanyahu held a press conference in which they announced the signing of a coalition deal between the two parties.
