Knesset swears in new Kadima MK Avi Duan

January 25, 2012 12:36

Avi Duan became the newest Knesset Member Wednesday, after being sworn in to replace MK Eli Aflalo, whose resignation took effect at 11:45 a.m.

Duan is campaign chief to Shaul Mofaz, and his entry into the Knesset shifts the primary tides in the 28-MK Kadima faction. 

His entry to the Knesset represents a loss for Tzipi Livni; while she still has more backing than any of the particular opponents vying for the party leadership in the March 27 primary, the combined anti-Livni camp now holds a majority.
