Kadima MK Ze'ev Bielski met with party leader Tzipi Livni Monday night and told her he intends to support her rival, Shaul Mofaz, in the March 27 leadership race.
"I respect her a lot and she is a very courageous woman," Bielski said. "But I see the situation Kadima is in and we must stop the deterioration."
Bielski said he had been working closely with Mofaz and saw how he makes decisions, delegates, and works as a team.
"His history as an immigrant who rose to be IDF chief of General Staff and making life and death decisions is impressive," Bielski said. "At this time, Kadima needs a change. I believe Mofaz can restore Kadima's former place as the ruling party in the Israeli government."
