Head of the opposition Tzipi Livni and the Kadima party will vote against the Jerusalem-Golan Heights national referendum bill, according to press release by the party on Monday.

It was decided that Kadima MKs in favor of the bill will not participate in the vote.

"Today's proposal relates to the question of national referendum as a whole and not the specific issue that is being debated in this proposal," Livni said during a party meeting. "This is a matter of principle and it is not about who wants to give up parts of the country. These are the decisions of a leadership which understands the scope of the problems it faces and is exposed to all the aspects that it should be," Livni added.
