Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz on Tuesday continued defending his decision to leave the government after only 70 days, reminding why he decided to bring the Knesset's largest political party into the government in the first place.
Kadima entered the government in order to advance four issues, he told Army Radio, universal service, a change in the system of government, negotiations with the Palestinians, and passing a social budget in 2013. "The first test was the Tal Law."
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu broke the coalition agreement with Kadima, Mofaz charged, by dismissing the Plesner Committee and its recommendations for replacing the Tal Law.
"Our exit [from the government] was unavoidable," he added.
