Opposition leader Tzipi Livni called on Sunday for a return to elections and renewed talks towards making a final two-state solution. Speaking to Israel Radio, she said "[Kadima] wants two states." Livni added that the demands by Palestinians is greater today than it had been because Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his coalition refused to return to the negotiating table, laying the blame on the Palestinian side.

Livni criticized Netanyahu's insistence that the Palestinians were at fault for the lack of negotiations, saying that "The international community doesn't believe the Palestinians are guilty."

The opposition leader concluded that "in Israel there are two visions," saying one belongs to Kadima, and the other to those "standing around hoping everything will be alright."
