Kadima Bill Seeks to Cancel 2012 Budget


Kadima party leader Tzipi Livni and faction chairwoman Dalia Itzik submitted a bill, Sunday afternoon, to cancel the 2012 national budget. The bill seeks to replace the financial document with a completely new plan that includes a new national agenda.

A Kadima statement said, "The two-year budget submitted by the Netanyahu government contained an erroneous and distorted set of priorities, which caused Israel to deteriorate to the biggest societal and economic rift in its history." The statement warns that if the budget is not changed, the situation will continue next year.
