Hatnua Chairwoman Tzipi Livni said she is committed to instigating a dramatic change in the way budgets are allocated to the settlements. "There will be a distinct differentiation between settlement blocs and political settlements," she said.
Livni presented a plan that stipulates keeping the settlement blocs under Israeli control under any peace agreement, unlike secluded settlements she branded as "political." She hinted that the legal settlements will continue receiving state funds. (Yuval Karni)
