Knesset speaker Dalia Itzik reaffirmed on Sunday the need for a unity government, and said that Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni was the right person to form that government. "Kadima is the largest faction. I don't see any other option than the president asking us to form a government," she said during a Kadima faction meeting. "If Tzipi does form the government, there will be Right and Left." Itzik added that while Kadima would prefer unity, it was not entirely against sitting in the Opposition. "[If Kadima is not asked to form a coalition, I want to recommend that we all recommend going to the opposition," she said. "The government will be extreme and from one color."
