Candidate for the leadership of Kadima MK Shaul Mofaz on Wednesday responded to party leader Tzipi Livni's decision to advance the faction's primaries to March 27, saying Livni had "finished her role as the leader of Kadima today."
Livni, who had resisted attempts by her rivals to advance the primaries, was forced to reconsider her position when journalist and anchorman Yair Lapid announced his intention to enter politics earlier this month, Mofaz said.
Mofaz attacked Livni, saying her "stammering behavior" had caused "great damage" to the party.
The former defense minister expressed confidence that he would win Kadima's primary and replace Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu when the general election was held.
