The Kadima Party's governing council will meet Thursday night at the party's Petah Tikva headquarters to consider a proposal to institute an annual membership fee. Until now, Kadima membership only required a one-time payment, so the party's rolls include many people who have left the party ideologically.

The move is expected to increase the re-election chances of party chairman Tzipi Livni at the expense of her rival, MK Shaul Mofaz. Former Kadima leadership candidate Meir Sheetrit released a statement endorsing the decision, saying that he left Likud to form a party that would be cleaner and he did not want to enable voters who no longer have a connection to Kadima to decide its fate.
