Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will hold a special press conference on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Israel time, the Prime Minister's Office announced.
No further details were given as to the nature of the gathering.
Israeli media sources speculated Olmert was planning to announce either that he will not run in the Kadima primary election in September, or that he will step down right away.
Tellingly, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who is currently in Washington, announced that she will be holding an unscheduled press conference two and a half hours after Olmert's.

About to put the lumber to Iran, perhaps?
Could be big news...
That’s 1pm eastern.
I doubt it.
Haaretz.com says it will be a “Surpise address to public”.
Nah...Olmert is kind of the Ted Stevens of Israel.
Olmert: “ I have just made peace with Syria, Hamas and the PA. Israel has ceded the Golan heights, Judea and Sam....sorry, the West Bank and Ashkelon and Sedrot. And BTW I will take part in Kadima’s primary election, as the only candidate. New elections will be held in Israel in two years time - if then.”
I guess Israel will get their second female Prime Minister, an ex mossad officer.
He said earlier today that “it must be understood that there are certain things the State cannot do. The State cannot fight against the Iranian threat while concerning itself with Jewish education in Russia and the former Soviet Union, and in addition supplying welfare, education, and housing with all of their needs.”
He's going to announce that he's the real father of John Edward's love child.
Obama - Olmert 2008 ??
So Officer David from NCIS is in politics? Cool! ;)
"I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to GEICO!"
I guess Israel will get their second female prime minister . . .
Tzipi the Pinhead? Reminds me of "Zippy the Pinhead," the weird cartoon in New York's Village Voice of many decades ago about a character with a conical head and a clown suit, whose idea of paradise was a coin-op laundry called "Laundro-World."
Too many layers of irony for me to get. It was fascinating, the way, when you're a kid, a dog's breath can be fascinatingly bad.
Bibi needs to take over.
They could sure use her.
