Bat Yam Mayor Shlomi Lahiani announced that he would not be running for Kadima leadership on Monday, hours before the deadline to officially submit candidacy.
The final list of candidates for the Kadima primary, which is set to take place on March 27, consists of party chairwoman Tzipi Livni, MK Shaul Mofaz and MK Avi Dichter.
Lahiani explained that he considered running, but decided against it because he loves Bat Yam and still has work to do as its mayor.
