Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz said Tuesday that he was willing to compromise in negotiations over universal service but that there were red lines he was unwilling to cross, speaking to reporters minutes after Kadima voted to leave the coalition.

Saying that Kadima would not allow a "Tal Law 2," Mofaz rejected the idea of delaying military or national service to age 26, as opposed to Kadima's proposal that limited deferals to 22.
