The Center-Left of the political camp became even more complicated Wednesday when former prime minister Ehud Olmert endorsed Kadima and agreed to serve on the committee that will decide its list for the January 22 election.

Olmert's associates said his participation in the committee would have no impact on his decision about whether to run, which would only be made when he returns from his visit to the United States next Tuesday. Lists of candidates must be submitted to the central elections committee by next Thursday.

"As long as he has not chosen one of his options, all options continue to be on the table in one way or another," an Olmert associate said.

Olmert made a point of endorsing Kadima the day after former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni returned to politics at the helm of a new party, the Tzipi Livni Party. The endorsement was seen as a sign that there is still life to the party that Olmert and Livni once headed.
