Former Kadima minister Haim Ramon is in discussions with former prime minister Ehud Olmert and Tzipi Livni about the formation of a new political party, although he said Olmert has not yet made a decision on whether to return to politics, speaking with Army Radio Wednesday morning.

Saying he is speaking with a number of politicians about populating a party list, Mofaz said that the head of the potential party will be chosen based on their chance of replacing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu on Wednesday announced that new elections will be held "as soon as possible" after failing to reach agreement with his coalition partners on a new budget.
