Prime Minister Ariel Sharon today met again with the General Manager of the Government Companies Authority, Yaron Jacobs, and asked for his response to Sharon's claims in their meeting two weeks ago regarding his discontent with Jacobs' performance.

Sharon also said at that meeting that under the circumstances the two should jointly reconsider whether to extend Jacobs' tenure as General Manager. Jacobs's contract expires March 31 of this year.

In the next few days the PM's bureau will send Jacobs a letter detailing the grievances, to which Jacobs should immediately respond. The two will meet again to discuss their decision.

The PM office's dissatisfaction with Jacobs stems from a difference of opinion on the privatization of Bezeq, which Jacobs rushed to publicize, much to Sharon's dismay.
