Haim Ramon to found new centrist party

July 3, 2012 10:42

Former Kadima council chairman Haim Ramon said Tuesday that he intends to found a new centrist political party to unseat Prime Minster Binyamin Netanyahu.

"There's an alternative that must replace Netanyahu," he said in an interview with Army Radio.

He refused to say whether ousted Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni was on board with his party, but averred that he will hold distinct positions from Yair Lapid, who also has a fledgling centrist party, and Opposition Leader Shelly Yechimovich, who he called an "accomplice of Netanyahu."

Ramon quit Kadima over its decision to join Netanyahu's coalition in May.
