Opposition leader Shelly Yechimovich on Wednesday called on Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz to announce in the Kadima faction meeting that his party will immediately quit the coalition.

She said that Kadima's withdrawal will "put a stop the political farce surrounding the Tal Law, which will not yield real results even if a new law is passed."

"Elections should be held in September and this was avoided just because of a political exercise of survival and now we have to go to the public and let it have its say in a wide range of significant issues in Israeli society," Yechimovich stated.

Mofaz was due to hold a faction meeting at 17:15.
