As expected, Member of Knesset Meir Sheetrit announced, Monday, that he would support Member of Knesset Shaul Mofaz in the Kadima party leadership primaries against incumbent Tzipi Livni and Member of Knesset Avi Dichter. Sheetrit told a news conference, " I could have been the best change but I have no chance of winning. The candidate with a chance of winning is Mofaz and that's why I have decided to support him."
Livni headquarters said, "As expected, the candidates who lost to Livni last time are banding together to oust her from the head of Kadima." The statement called the Opposition Leader the only alternative to Prime Minister Netanyahu, hinting that the other candidates were trying to fragment the party.
