Kadima faction chairwoman Dalia Itzik on Sunday called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's offer to join a national unity government "rotten and deceptive." In a report broadcast on Israel Radio, Itzik said that just a few days ago the prime minister offered seven portfolios to seven Kadima MKs, based on those seven defecting from the Kadima party. However now, Itzik said, Netanyahu is offering just two to all 28 Kadima Knesset members. Itzik added that, regarding the issue of primaries within Kadima, that it is the duty of the faction chairperson to keep the rank-and-file united, and that early elections are not the central issue of the party.
