Wahabi Criticizes Kadima's Cancellation of Primaries


MK Majalli Wahabi (Kadima) expressed outrage on Sunday over his party’s decision to cancel its planned primaries and instead appoint a committee to select its list for the next Knesset.

“Apparently the Kadima MKs forgot to do some self-examination last Yom Kippur,” Wahabi said. “Everyone knows what has brought us to the situation in which we are in today and therefore, coming up with a proposal for a committee means arranging a job for several MKs and I will not be a rubber stamp for anyone.”

He added, “No one has the right to cast aspersions on Kadima’s good MKs and so I decided to refrain from participating in this hypocritical vote.”
