Avigdor Yitzchaki, one of the founders of the Kadima party, expressed support, Monday, for Member of Knesset Meir Sheetrit's attempts to divide the party. Interviewed on Arutz Sheva, the former Knesset member said, "I wish him success."
Referring to the other candidates for the party chair, he said, "Both Mofaz and Dichter crowned with glory and courage of their military service and security but they are not demonstrating it in politics."
The Director-General of the Prime Minister's Office during Ariel Sharon's tenure as prime minister had harsh criticism for incumbent Tzipi Livni's conduct, saying she "has made very big mistakes. First, when she did not establish a government when the president gave her the opportunity to do so, for lack of basic understanding. Secondly, when she did not join the Netanyahu coalition." He maintained that the number of seats held by Kadima, Likud and Labor could have formed a strong coalition that would have brought in the small parties on favorable terms.
Yitzchaki continued by saying that Livni's third mistake was the thought that she could form a strong opposition at a time when "there is no opposition" because one cannot find one thing in common in the opposition parties, Kadima, Meretz and the National Union. In addition, he mentioned Livni's political wriggle around the question of holding internal elections for party leadership, which are, in his opinion, the right thing for now, such that she "has brought Kadima to the verge of collapse."
