Although the date for the next Knesset elections remains over two years away, MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) announced Saturday night that he expects to be the next prime minister – and, en route, defeat party rival Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni for the party’s leadership.

“I see myself as a candidate for the premiership, and I will get there,” promised Mofaz during an interview on Channel 2 Television’s “Meet the Press”. “I have never hidden the fact that I will run for the leadership of Kadima. I will win in Kadima and I will win in the general elections.”

Mofaz predicted that “if, by March, there isn’t a national unity government, it will be clear that there is no peace process. And if there is no process, there will be elections. It is just a matter of time – I don’t know how many months afterward the elections will be, but they will come.”
