Former prime minister Ehud Olmert promised not to endorse any candidate in the March 27 Kadima primary in a controversial meeting at his Tel Aviv office Thursday with opposition leader Tzipi Livni.

Olmert has been quoted recently expressing support for Livni's chief rival, Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Shaul Mofaz. But Olmert has since decided to remain neutral in the race.

Journalist turned politician Yair Lapid also consulted with Olmert before he decided to enter politics two weeks ago. Olmert has also met recently with Mofaz.

Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich blasted all three politicians for meeting with Olmert, who is facing multiple indictments in corruption scandals.
