Three Kadima MKs rebel, vote against coalition

MK Isaac Herzog (Labor) bill to make discrimination against women a crime punishable by jail time or a NIS 300,000 fine was voted down by 26 MKs in a preliminary reading Wednesday.
Of the 15 MKs who did support Herzog’s proposal, three – Abesadze, Yoel Hasson and Robert Tivayev – were from Kadima. Later Wednesday, Abesadze also voted against the coalition in favor of a bill allowing civil marriage, by MK Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz).
Coalition chairman Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) slammed the Kadima MKs, saying they are suffering from “multiple personalities,” and have yet to absorb the fact that they are no longer in the opposition.
“They need psychological help, as soon as possible,” Elkin quipped.
