Report: Livni to Announce Political Plans Next Week


Former opposition leader Tzipi Livni is expected to announce, at the start of next week, that she is returning to politics and will run for the Knesset in two months, according to a Friday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily.

The former Kadima leader will return via the Chetz (Arrow) party, which was headed by former senior Shinui party member Avraham Poraz before it was shelved. Other former Kadima Knesset members, such as Shlomo Molla and Yoel Hasson, are expected to join her. Polls do not give Kadima a chance of receiving enough votes to remain in the Knesset.
