Shinui chairman Yosef Lapid on Thursday called upon the supporters of the movement's founder Uriel Reichman's to follow in their leader's footsteps and leave the faction. "They have no place here after their spiritual leader abandoned us in favor of the Kadima Party," Lapid said at a party convention in Tel Aviv. Prof. Uriel Reichman, who founded the Shinui and president of the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center announced on November 29 that he would join Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Kadima party. The party's leader absolved himself and the rest of the leadership for Shinui's drop in public opinion polls, Israel Radio reported. He expressed his opinion that if Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had not formed his own party, Shinui would have received the same number of Knesset seats as they after the last elections.
