Avraham Poraz on Tuesday blamed Kadima for Shinui's loss of power and the subsequent establishment of his new secular Zionist party, "Hetz." He told Israel Radio that after leaving Shinui, he remained quiet for two weeks while he deliberated over his next steps. Once he saw Shinui did not gain any more popularity once he left - even though people had said it would - he decided to make his own party.
