Interior Minister Eli Yishai has called MK Shaul Mofaz and congratulated him for being elected Kadima chairman in Tuesday's primary elections. Yishai urged Mofaz to join an emergency unity government.
"At a time when the State of Israel is facing fateful decisions, unity is necessary more than ever," Yishai said. "Mr. Mofaz could contribute significantly." (Attila Somfalvi and Kobi Nahshoni)
