MK Orit Zuaretz on Saturday equated the coalition deal which saw Kadima become a part of the ruling government with human trafficking.

"I just came back from an international conference where I represented Israel's struggle against the trafficking against women," Zuaretz wrote on her Facebook page, "and in the meanwhile, there seems to be human trafficking  going on here all the while, in front of the public eye."

"Twenty-eight MKs and 90,000 Kadima members were auctioned to [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu," Zuaretz said, referring to the shocking unity government deal signed by the prime minister and former opposition leader this past Monday.

Zuaretz joins a growing number of Kadima MKs who have voiced opposition to the deal since it was inked. Five MKs have said already that they want to break off from the party, though the legal requirement to split is seven.
