MK Nino Abesadze (Kadima) asserted on Monday that she would not be part of a "shady deal" that would strengthen Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a day after five Kadima KMs confirmed their intention to leave Kadima for the Likud.

Abesadze said she would not be a partner in a move that would enable Netanyahu to pass an "empty" replacement to the Tal Law, as well as a "cruel budget."

However, Absedadze added, "there is no doubt that Kadima has come to the end of its role, but if I make a political move, it will be solely on ideological grounds, not for compensation, and not as part of a dirty deal."
