On Tuesday, 1st May, Tzipi Livni is supposed to meet Knesset Speaker Rivlin, where political sources expect that she will submit her resignation from the Knesset after the recent loss of Shaul Mofaz in the Kadima primary.
This decision was made despite the fact that in a meeting between Livni and Mofaz that was held last week, the newly Kadima head said that Livni should stay in the party.
There are possibilities that there will be a split in Kadima after Livni's election loss and after she was defeated by Mofaz, who won the election.
In March, Mofaz won 61.7 percent- a total of 23,987 votes, while Livni, a foreign minister, took 37.23- a total of 14,516 votes.
Mofaz in his victory speech told those gathered at the Kadima party headquarters that the party would replace Netanyahu's government in Israel's next elections, and called on Israelis to have faith in the party.
He also said that the party must be strong and united after the primary elections, and called on Livni to join him in the effort to "return Israel to the right path." Emphasizing that Tzipi's place is in the party.
