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.
