Wikipedia background information on Olmert

On 4 May 2006, Olmert presented his new government to the Knesset. Olmert became Prime Minister and Minister for Welfare. The control over Welfare Ministry was expected to be given to United Torah Judaism if it would join the government. Olmert would, however, remain Minister of Welfare as UTJ usually prefers to manage government ministries from a Deputy Minister position.

On 24 May 2006, Olmert was invited to address a joint session of the US Congress.[24] He stated that his government would proceed with Israel's unilateral disengagement plan if it could not come to agreement with the Palestinians. Olmert was the third Israeli Prime Minister to have been invited to speak at a joint session of Congress. On June 4, 2006, Olmert announced he will meet Mahmoud Abbas to resume talks on the Road map for peace.
