Livni, Mofaz urge high voter turnout

Kadima chairmanship hopefuls make last-ditch efforts to convince party supporters to vote in primaries

A day before the Kadima party primaries, Members of Knesset Tzipi Livni and Shaul Mofaz made last-ditch efforts to convince party voters to participate in the elections.


MK Livni, Kadima's incumbent chairwoman, sent voters a recorded message saying: "Hello, This is Tzipi Livni. This is a recording – but from the heart. They say tomorrow's elections will be the battle of my life, but this is our joint battle – the Israelis, the Zionists, who want to live and raise our children in a country of equal opportunity, a safe and free Israel."

In the message, Livni added that she remains loyal to Kadima's agenda: "As the leader of Kadima, I have stayed loyal to our values in every decision I made, even at a personal political cost, and that's what the elections are about.


"If we let despair and indifference keep us at home, we might wake up to a day when there is no leader who can truly represent us and replace Netanyahu. Don’t let others decide for you. Come and we shall win."


Meanwhile, MK Mofaz convened his supporters Monday afternoon at his headquarters, telling them: "We've reached the moment of truth. I want to call all our supporters to come out and vote, because the elections are about changing the face of Israel.


"We will make a change. We've done an extraordinary job together. I feel confident. There is an opportunity for change. We must work hard until the polls close and together we will win."


On Sunday Mofaz said that he is confident in his victory in the primaries. Meanwhile Livni told supporters on Sunday that the "political battle that will take place on Tuesday is not an internal matter, but rather a battle on Israel's face and on the future of the coalition."
