Justice Minister Tzipi Livni will hold the third slot on the Kadima party's Knesset list, according to a deal worked out between Livni, former prime minister Shimon Peres and acting prime minister Ehud Olmert late Monday night. According to the deal, Peres would be number two on the list. Olmert accepted Peres's request for a promotion on the Kadima list, but he turned down his request to be Olmert's vice prime minister or his candidate for foreign minister in a Kadima-led government. Both of those roles are expected to go to Livni, who volunteered to give up the second slot on the list for Peres.
