MKs in Kadima denied a Channel 10 report Monday night that the required seven MKs required by law to split the party had come together and were looking for an excuse to leave. The report said the MKs intended to run in the next general election in a party they hope would be formed by then by former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni.

Deputy prime minister Dan Meridor called upon Kadima over the weekend to join forces with Likud ahead of the next general election. Speaking at a forum of haredi (ultra-Orthodox) activists in Jerusalem, Meridor said there was no longer much of a difference between Likud and Kadima on diplomatic issues
