Kadima MK Avi Dichter said Thursday that opposition leader Shaul Mofaz is the only candidate who can beat Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the expected election, dismissing Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich as a serious contender, in an interview with Israel Radio.

Asked if he would consider defecting to Labor amidst reports that many Kadima MKs may jump ship to other parties to try to preserve their seats in the Knesset, Dichter said unequivocally that he would remain with Kadima.

While Dichter admitted that he had a strong working relationship with Yacimovich, he said that he had a positive relationship with all of the Knesset party heads, and that none of those connections would take him away from Kadima.
