Livni:Kadima strong party even in Sharon's absence

Prior to a Kadima faction meeting at the Knesset Monday afternoon, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni commented that the new party would still stand strong even in the absence of founder and central figure Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. "There are other leaders," Livni said Monday. "Kadima is based on Sharon but we also have a good group of people with a united vision, skills and experience. Naturally the focus is on the head of the party but we are also a party with a path that is best for leading Israel," Livni said.
