Mayors affiliated with the Labor Party complained that the Finance Ministry conference to which they were invited turned into a political gathering for Kadima. The mayors maintained that they were invited by the Finance Minister, but when they arrived they were surprised to find the walls plastered with Kadima campaign posters, Army Radio reported. They also reported that the speeches all had a political tint to them, including that of Finance Minister Ehud Olmert. Kadima rejected the allegations and said that everyone who came to the conference knew that it was a conference in support of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
