Former minister Haim Ramon Tuesday praised Tzipi Livni in the race for Kadima party leader. Ramon's statements came on the day of Kadima primary elections between Livni, its current leader, and MK Shaul Mofaz.
The central reason for endorsing Livni is that she is “one of the few politicians that prioritizes values over electoral considerations,” Ramon said in an interview with Army Radio. “She chose to remain as an alternative rather than playing second fiddle in Netanyahu's government. I know that there are those who criticize her for this, and I don't understand [them],” he added
Moreover, Ramon claimed that Livni was the only one who would not “sell out” as she had refused to pay billions of dollars to the haredi parties and “give up” on the peace process.
