Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) is considering canceling his party's primary in favor of a selection committee that would decide who is on the list for the next Knesset, Kadima sources said on Wednesday.

Mofaz will not make a final decision until after the Knesset is dissolved next week, and is weighing the pros and cons of each method. Should he decide to appoint a selection committee, Mofaz would have to change Kadima regulations, which would require approval from MKs and the party's central committee.

"We want what is good for the state, which is a strong Kadima," Mofaz said, when asked his considerations in examining the two possibilities.

Meanwhile, Kadima MKs are split on whether a committee would help or harm the party, with Mofaz's closest allies speaking out against holding a primary.
