Alfei Menashe mayor Hisdai Eliezer announced on Tuesday that he had decided to leave Kadima in favor a new party led by current and former mayors. He said that due to mistakes made by Kadima, he believed the party had no future. A Kadima spokesman responded that Eliezer's claims were "nonsense." Eliezer's departure is a blow to the party that showcased him when he joined it. When Ariel Sharon founded the party, he made a point of putting kippa wearers and settlers on the party list, but all of them have since left the party or were not re-elected to the Knesset.
