Mofaz Charges Netanyahu a 'Failed Leader'
Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz on Monday blasted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu saying he was a failed leader.
"Your recent actions have proven that you don't have the leadership ability needed at this time," he added.
The unity government, unpopular with many Kadima MKs, collapsed amid a dispute over replacing the controversial Tal Law.
However, Mofaz's own grip on Kadima has begun to fail, leading to calls for his resignation.
Kadima sent a letter to the Knesset House Committee which is set to discuss its request to declare the four as "secessionists."
Likud responded, "Mofaz is now the chairman of a quarter faction. Even those who sat beside him don't believe his slogans. Everyone remembers what Mofaz seems to have forgotten – he's the one who approved the Tal Law, when he enthusiastically voted in its favor in 2007."
Meanwhile, Labor party leader Shelly Yechimovich and Independence party leader Ehud Barak both offered disenfranchized Kadima MKs politcal refuge in their ranks.
