Kadima leadership candidate Meir Sheetrit denied reports on Sunday that he was trying to draft the seven MKs required to split his faction and form a new one under his leadership.

Sheetrit has been a frequent critic of the party's current head, opposition leader Tzipi Livni. Army Radio reported that he had spoken about splitting the faction with multiple MKs but had fallen an MK or two short in drafting the necessary amount.

Kadima MKs, including Sheetrit, confirmed that they were concerned about their party's future following a Shvakim Panorama poll broadcast Thursday on Israel Radio that predicted that Kadima would win only 10 seats in the next Knesset if journalist Yair Lapid formed a rival party.
