Prime minister’s powers passed to Acting PM Ehud Olmart Wednesday night, Jan. 4, after Ariel Sharon, 78, suffered stroke. He is connected to respirator and under general aesthetic in emergency ward for tests to assess the extent of the damage. Sharon was suddenly rushed to Hadassah Ain Karem hospital in Jerusalem with chest pains at his ranch south of Beersheba the day before he was due to go into the same hospital for heart surgery. Sources report that the first impression of medical specialists is that the prime minister may have suffered internal hemorrhage as a result of the anti-coagulant shots administered twice a day in the three weeks since his first thrombosis. His condition is cause for concern.
