Prime Minister Ehud Olmert cancelled his participation in the Local Government Committee on Thursday after only 10 people arrived to hear him speak, Israel Radio reported.

Regional authority leaders said that his departure was probably due to the minimal turn-out. The Prime Minister’s Office denied the accusations, saying that Olmert had left because of schedule changes.
