Sheetrit: If elected to head Kadima I will push for general election

Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit, who is running for the leadership of Kadima, announced Thursday that if elected, rather than form a new coalition, he would push for a general election. "Assembling such a government," he told Army Radio, "will serve many interests in the Knesset, but not the interests of the country. The current government in dysfunctional; its makeup is wrong, the coalition is unstable, people are undisciplined and there is utter anarchy in votes."
