Livni Camp Accuses Mofaz Camp of Lying


The office of incumbent Kadima party Chairwoman Tzipi Livni attacked the campaign staff of challenger Shaul Mofaz,Tuesday, following reports by the Mofaz staff to the media that a 20 out of 40 local leaders had switched their support in the upcoming party primaries from Livni to Mofaz.

The Livni campaign attacked the mathematical claims of the Mofaz camp that the number of defections equalled 80 percent, adding that some of the local leaders cited in the Mofaz report were members of Likud and not Kadima. One local leader said he had not taken a position in the race. The Livni camp claimed the allegiance of other local leaders, adding that they would publish their own list in a few days and demanding "truth in advertising" from the Mofaz campaign
