Shaul Mofaz will officially be declared new opposition leader in a mid-recess Knesset meeting next Monday.
Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin's office announced on Thursday that 25 MKs signed a letter requesting a plenum meeting. Kadima plans to officially declare Mofaz as leader during the meeting.
As leader of the largest opposition party, Mofaz is the automatic choice for opposition leader, unless all of the other opposition parties agree on an alternative candidate.
