Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Sunday that she had no opposition to adding parties to the coalition, so long as they accept the guidelines of the government and oppose a freeze in the diplomatic process. Regarding a change to the current election system, Livni said that the political system had been through a lot in past decades, and that any change would require an examination of data. Kadima, Livni said, had examined the issue before the election and decided not to return to the two-ballot system. Livni stated that Kadima should work to delay Israel Beitenu's proposal. "There is no reason Kadima should back a proposal that doesn't fit [the party's] opinion," she said.
