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
"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.
