MK Meir Sheetrit expected to quit Livni's Hatnua Party

Meir Sheetrit, the veteran parliamentarian, is expected to convene a press conference in Tel Aviv on Thursday where he will announce that he is quitting Hatnua, the party headed by Tzipi Livni.
Sheetrit joins fellow Hatnua MKs Amram Mitzna, David Tsur, and Elazar Stern, all of whom indicated that they are either quitting politics altogether or are running for Knesset under a different banner.
