Dividing Jerusalem is negotiable, Hatnua leader Tzipi Livni said in the inaugural episode of The Jerusalem Post's Election Arena, an online video series, Thursday.
"I hope not," was Livni's answer to whether she was for or against dividing the capital city.
When asked if that means that she thinks a divided Jerusalem is a possibility, she responded that the issue would be "part of the negotiations."
However, she added that the goal would be "to keep Jerusalem united under Israeli sovereignty."
Livni also said that while Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "was once a terrorist, he isn't anymore."
