Kadima on Wednesday called to immediately halt the discussion on the 2010 and 2011 budget and alleged that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu bribed the National Union party.

"Netanyahu bought the National Union and [Interior Minister] Eli Yishai admitted that he reached an agreement with the Treasury which he did not report to the Knesset," Kadima alleged in a press release.

"This is a new and unprecedented height of law violations that border corruption in broad daylight. During every hour that passes during the budget debate, more and more stench is revealed which brings about the approval of the budget. This budget was born through sin, and its approval is brought about by violating the law. The Knesset chairman must halt its approval."
