Kadima, Run - Olmert: Lemmi Join You; Yechimovich: Join Me

Former Kadima chairwoman, Tzipi Livni is expected to meet on Sunday with former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and discuss with the possibility of running together as a team in the upcoming Knesset elections, Channel 2 News reported on Saturday evening.

According to the Channel 2 report, following Olmert's decision not to run, Livni decided to run alone, which ultimately gave Olmert the urge to share that spotlight with her.

According to INN, MK Danny Danon referred to Livni’s plans to return to politics on Saturday, saying, “The eternal hesitator Tzipi has missed the train and will fight for the remaining bits of the seats of the left, while the right is united behind Netanyahu. The trend leftist parties are continuing to fight in order to pass the electoral threshold.”

Labor leader, Shelly Yechimovich called on Livni  to join Labor instead of running independently.

"Do not split the center, join us, the largest party in the bloc, and together we’ll put an end to Netanyahu’s power,” Yechimovich wrote on her Facebook page.

“Since Livni left Kadima, I invited her, several times, to join me. The proposals I offered her were very respectful and honorable, I call on Tzipi Livni to join me and the Labor party and avoid forming a new party that will take votes from the centrist parties which already exist,” said Yechimovich.
