Livni sets Kadima primaries for March

Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni

Tzipi Livni, chairwoman of the Kadima faction, has set the primaries of her party for March 27.

“This primary will not only decide who will head Kadima but whether the Netanyahu government can be overthrown,” the former Foreign Minister said. “We cannot allow this government to stay in power. Only Kadima under my authority can defeat Netanyahu and prevent him from forming another government with his coalition partners.”

Expected to run for the leadership against her, are MK Shaul Mofaz, former IDF Chief of Staff and Minister of Defense, MK Meir Sheetrit, who has occupied several ministerial positions including that of Minister of Interior, Minister of Finance and Minister of Housing, and MK Avi Dichter, former director of the Shin Bet security agency.
