Kadima leadership candidate Shaul Mofaz said Sunday night that if elected leader of Kadima and forms a coalition after the next general election, he would form a national-unity government with the Likud.

Mofaz made the statement at an event at a Tel Aviv bar organized by Mitpakdim, a new organization that encourages young people to become more politically active by entering current political parties and influencing their future from within.
