Kadima's Aflalo opposed to joining Likud-led government

Absorption Minister Eli Aflalo, of Kadima, said Friday that he was opposed to joining a Likud-led government, saying most Kadima members supported him. During a meeting with Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, Aflalo stressed that Kadima voters would have wanted to see the party lead the government, not to merely be a coalition partner in it, saying it would be better for the party to sit in the opposition instead.
