Mofaz Touts Near Crash as New Opportunity

Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz, whose party managed to enter the Knesset by the skin of its teeth, touted his achievement as a victory on Thursday.

Kadima was the largest party in the outgoing Knesset with 28 seats and just barely managed to pass the electoral threshold this time around. It will have only two Knesset members in the 19th Knesset: Mofaz and Yisrael Hasson, one of only a few Kadima members who chose to run with the party instead of quitting politics or joining another party.
