Mofaz criticizes Sharon's choice of allies

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, who is running for head of the Likud, said on Wednesday that the prime minister made a mistake when he split from the Likud and decided to run on the same list as Haim Ramon, Dalia Itzik, and most likely Peres. Whoever votes for Sharon will get Peres, Ramon, and Itzik, Israel Radio quoted Mofaz as saying. Moshe Feiglin, who is also running for Likud leadership, opened his campaign on Wednesday and held a press conference.
