The last week of the Knesset should be devoted to passing legislation to dispersing the Knesset, Labor leader Shelly Yecimovich said Monday following two days of turmoil in the Kadima party.

Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz on Monday submitted a letter to Knesset House Committee chairman Yariv Levin requesting the dismissal of MKs Otniel Schneller, Arieh Bibi, Avi Duan and Yulia Shamolov Berkovich, who expressed their will to leave Kadima for the Likud.

"There is a limit to the ability of the public to suffer," Yechimovich said.

"There were MKs in Kadima who said they identify with us. [Labor MK Isaac] Herzog helped them practically by giving them a legislative security net. I will be happy to see in Labor those few good MKs who share our outlook and realize Kadima finished its path – without promises and jobs and certainly not in a deal that would strengthen Netanyahu. Our door is open to them," Yechimovich stated.
