Hatnua leader Tzipi Livni will announce her candidates for the Knesset on Tuesday, following the return from abroad of MKs Amram Mitzna and David Tsur, a source close to her said on Monday.

Livni has been keeping her list of candidates a secret since joining up with Labor two weeks ago. She has obtained for Hatnua the second, eighth, 16th, 21st, 24th and 25th slots on the Labor list.

All that is known is that the eighth slot will go to MK Amir Peretz and one of the slots to economist Manuel Trajtenberg.

MK Elazar Stern announced on Saturday night that he would not be running with Hatnua.

The fates of current Hatnua MKs Mitzna, Tsur and Meir Sheetrit remained unclear on Monday night.

A source in Hatnua confirmed a report that, unlike in the January 2013 election, Livni intends to include female candidates other than herself, a sign that at least one current Hatnua MK will not be on the list.
