Mofaz demands earlier Kadima primaries to match Likud

Kadima MK Shaul Mofaz urged Kadima to move up its primaries in order to offer an alternative to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, he said Monday.
"The opening shot of the election has been fired," Mofaz told reporters at the Knesset, "after the Likud set a January 2012 primary, Kadima has become the only party in the Knesset that is not holding primaries. In the army it is said that those who want peace must prepare for war, and I say that those who want to topple the government and present an alternative must understand that, to be ready, we must hold primaries."
Regarding Livni's attempt to avoid initiating a leadership race he predicted that "even those grabbing onto power with their last legs will eventually crack."
