Dichter: I Didn't Have Enough Political Strength


Member of Knesset Avi Dichter said, Thursday afternoon, that he was throwing his support in the Kadima leadership primaries to Knesset member Shaul Mofaz because, "My political strength is not enough to win the leadership of Kadima." He added, "The whole will be greater than the sum of its parts."

Referring to the weakening of the party under incumbent Tzipi Livni, Dichter continued, "Mofaz, members of Knesset and the [party's] many activists miss and long to return the party to the original party that [former prime minister Ariel] Sharon bequeathed to us."
