Opposition leader Tzipi leader said Thursday that MK's Avi Dichter's withdrawal from the Kadima leadership race was expected, and shows that her competitors understand that Kadima members prefer her.
Her comments came shortly after Dichter withdrew his candidacy and announced that he would support Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Shaul Mofaz.
"Dichter's zigzag, which broke all of his promises, along with the pressure Mofaz is under, proves that all they want to be is spare change in a Netanyahu government," said Livni.
Polls had shown Dichter to be the underdog in the race, lagging far behind the other two candidates.
