Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and former Opposition Chairwoman Tzipi Livni – both once the heads of the Kadima Party – met Wednesday, against the backdrop of persistent rumors that they may join forces for a political comeback ahead of the nearing elections.


The two reportedly agreed that the "serious deterioration" in all aspects of Israeli government mandate a change in the country's leadership.

Both Olmert and Livni have remained mum regarding the possibility of returning to politics.


"This isn't just my decision," Linvi said earlier in the week. "We need a bloc and a joint decision on a premiership candidate. I'm at the point where I need to know it's more than just being heard – it's doing what Israel needs and leading a change."
