Quote of the Day (qotd)

The proposed law is not directed at Shaul Mofaz. I do not know who will break off and who will not. We want to establish norms. This rule would apply to everyone. It is appropriate that MKs should stay in their own parties and not receive prizes for abandoning it. If we want to return trust to the public in politics, one should act responsibly.

---------MK Shlomo Mula (Kadima)

This is regarding a proposed law to counter the proposed "Mofaz law" allowing lower numbers of MKs to split from a party. The proposed law would disallow an MK who split from a party from becoming a minister immediately.

Funny that an MK in Kadima is saying that MKs who abandon their original party should not be allowed to become ministers.

  1. Funny but not fair. In the 1990 "stinking manuever" when Peres and Deri tried to topple Shamir. There were were two attempts. Rav Shach first refused to go along which created a 60/60 stalemate. After that Labor promised Avraham Sharir, a Likud MK a ministry if he would switch sides, which failed since the Lubavitcher Rebbe got 2 Aguda MK not to go along at the last minute.
    Anyway after that the Knesset passed a law that requires 1/3 of a party to split off in order to have a split in order to prevent thqt in the future.
    Hence Kadimah has every right to oppose watering down that bill, since they split off within the parameters of the present law.
