    Background: For story see news agency reports on Mrs. Meir returns mandate to Is president.

    The unhappy faces of the cabinet ministers leaving this morning 's regular cabinet meeting, seemed to have indicated that all was not well ... and that meant that Def. Min. Dayan stood fast by his decision, not to joint the next cabinet. Such a decision in turn made the afternoons faction and leadership session of the Alignment-Mapam Labour party a big question mark: Will Dayan's Rafi faction give Mrs. Meir a vote of confidence on Tuesday in the Knesset? In the Knesset yes - but at the faction meeting too many voices became loud, asking for a National Emergency Cabinet, to include the Likud opposition block and the National Religious Party, a cabinet Mrs. Meir had indicated, she would not only not lead but strongly oppose as unworkable. All of the sudden Mrs. Meir stormed out of the meeting after having announced to the meeting that she would return the mandate to Is president Katzir tonight.-The various factions of the Labour Alignment went into session immediately and a delegation, comprising representatives of all the factions went to Mrs. Meir's residence to try and make her change her mind. At the time of writing the meeting is still in progress.
