Kadima on Life Support as Mofaz Faces Rebellion

Kadima officials are working to depose Shaul Mofaz from his role as party head, Haaretz learned on Monday, citing the outgoing vice prime minister’s weak poll numbers.

The reported plan came as Kadima seemed to edge closer to a full-on split, with former minister Tzachi Hanegbi spearheading efforts to convince at least seven Kadima MKs – the minimum required to create a new faction – to break off and rejoin the coalition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Kadima is a sinking ship, it’s a fait accompli. All its MKs are looking for lifeboats,” said one Kadima MK.

According to party officials, the plan is to either push Mofaz out of office, or force him into another vote for party head, after taking the reins from former Kadima chief Tzipi Livni in March of this year.
