Kadima Changes No-Confidence Motion

Kadima plans to file a measure of no-confidence in the government Monday, not on the issue of the peace process, as originally planned – but on the issue of the high prices of home purchases and rentals in the center of the country, the latest “hot button” issue generating headlines. Kadima made a request to change the language of its no-confidence vote scheduled for Monday with Knesset officials on Sunday.

In a statement, Kadima said that the one thing that the Likud had accomplished in two and a half years of government was creating a movement by those who are frustrated at the government's inaction – young adults, who, Kadima said, had “lost faith in the biggest and most wasteful government in Israel's history.”
