Livni Says Kadima Headed for Extinction

Tzipi Livni, former head of the Kadima Party, said that the centrist party will not be in existence by the next Knesset elections.

Livni, who stepped down as head of Kadima and as head of the opposition after losing party primaries in March, when asked if Kadima will be part of the next government, which is set to be elected in November 2013, said “There will be no Kadima by the next election.,” according to Army Radio. She made the comment at an IDC conference in Herzliya

Livni said when she resigned from the Knesset that she was not going to absent herself from public life.

The Kadima Party, headed by Shaul Mofaz, last month joined the government coalition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
