Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz on Thursday defended his decision to join the coalition of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu calling the possibility to form a national unity government "a historic opportunity to make meaningful steps for the good of the public."

Mofaz, who has been heavily criticized for joining Netanyahu's coalition after having attacked the prime minister as "a liar" in his role as opposition leader, stated that "their are times when the leadership must make decisions even if they seem unpopular."
