Kadima Sources Claim Livni, Ramon Trying to Split Party

Sources within the Kadima party say former leader Tzipi Livni and former central-committee chairman Chaim Ramon joined forces during the last few days to bring about a split in the party, according to a Friday-morning report by Yisrael Hayom.

The sources say the effort started when the party entered the ruling coalition. They reported that Ramon said, in private conversations, that he intended to bring about what he called "Big Bang 2".
