Former minister Tzachi Hanegbi persuaded 52 Kadima activists to join him in leaving the party for the Likud at an event he hosted Thursday night at the Kfar Hamaccabiah Hotel in Ramat Gan.

Hanegbi thanked the activists for staying loyal to him Kadima over the past seven years and for sticking with him when he returns to his former political home.


"
We are here to strengthen Likud, the prime minister, and the stability of the government," Hanegbi told the activists at the event.

Kadima officials downplayed Hanegbi's departure and called him shameless.
