Livni Mum on Candidate to Formulate Government

Chairwoman Tzipi Livni of the Hatenu'ah party told President Shim'on Peres, Thursday, that she chose not to recommend a candidate to formulate Israel's next government coalition.

Following the meeting of Hatenu'ah representatives with Peres, Livni said, "There is a candidate to lead the government but we told the president that since the government's policy is not clear, we will not make a recommendation and will determine our position on the basis of the government that is formed."
