Kadima MK Haim Ramon still sees himself as a member of the Labor Party despite the fact that he left it to join Sharon's new party, according to a letter he sent to the Labor Knesset faction Monday. Three days earlier, Ramon reportedly sent a similar letter in which he said the exact opposite, informing the faction that he was leaving it for Kadima. Ramon said that he decided to remain in the faction in order to safeguard its government funding. According to Knesset legal sources who spoke with Israel Radio, however, if Ramon were to leave the Labor faction, he would not be allowed to run on the Kadima list for the next Knesset.
