Kadima will have a selection committee determine its list for the next Knesset instead of holding a primary, sources within the party said on Monday.

The party’s list was chosen by committee in 2006, but Kadima members voted in a primary in 2009.

Kadima faction chairwoman Dalia Itzik is leading the calls for party leader Shaul Mofaz to appoint a selection committee that will decide who will follow him on the list for the Knesset.

Of Kadima’s 28 MKs, only 10 are expected to make it into the next Knesset, according to recent polls.
