Environment Minister Gilad Erdan had sharp words in regards to Tzipi Livni's announcement she would run for Knesset. He said Livni's support for the disengagement from Gaza led to the Hamas takeover of the region and the rocket attacks on Israel's south. "It's delusional that she would speak about about strengthening Israel. Livni speaks loftily about hope and sells dreams but has failed time after time," Erdan stated. Livni announced her candidacy on Tuesday just after the Likud primary results were released indicating Erdan was elected to the number 3 spot in the party.
