MK Dalia Itzik (Kadima) said on Wednesday she would like to see former prime minister Ehud Olmert return to politics - in contrast with Likud ministers, who are promoting an initiative to prevent Olmert's participation in the upcoming elections.

In an interview with Army Radio, Itzik commented: "I want to see him as prime minister of Israel."

She continued to add: "At this point we need to put fanaticism and ego to one side, consider how team up with each other and to think how to do our best for Israel."
