Kadima MK Yulia Shamalov Berkovitch on Thursday announced she would join the Likud party and run in its upcoming primary.

Her decision came after two other MKs announced their departure from Kadima earlier in the day: Nino Abesadze to Labor and Arye Bibi to Likud.

Thursday marked 90 days before the January 22 election, the first day MKs could legally leave their party and run with another without resigning from the Knesset.
