Former prime minister Ehud Olmert attacked his successor at the helm of Kadima, Tzipi Livni, at a parlor meeting with current Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz Saturday night at the Tel Aviv home of former Shinui MK Eti Livni.

Olmert called upon voters to ask themselves whether it was more important to them to give the Tzipi Livni Party a tenth seat in the Knesset or enable Kadima to pass the electoral threshold.

"She lost the party leadership by a huge margin, because when she headed the party its members lost trust in her," Olmert said. "That is the truth. She did not succeed as head of the opposition."

The Tzipi Livni party responded that what mattered to both Livni and Olmert was defeating Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu no matter what Olmert said at the parlor meeting.
