Kadima Launches New Campaign Against Netanyahu's Government

Opposition's campaign features a scoreboard reading, 'Netanyahu 2, Israel 0' with the slogan 'Two years of Netanyahu, Israel loses.'

Kadima launched a new campaign on Wednesday, highlighting the faults of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government and calling for early elections.

The campaign features a sticker with the slogan "Two years of Netanyahu, Israel loses" and a scoreboard illustration declaring "Bibi 2: Israel 0."

Opposition head and Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni harshly criticized Netanyahu's government during a Knesset press conference on Wednesday.

"After two years, the Israeli public is losing. There is no leadership in Israel – the existing leadership only sees itself and doesn't see what is happening with the citizens," Livni said.

"The prime minister doesn't know how to make decisions… and Israel is weak. Two years later, the time has come to change this horrible government. Kadima always was and will be a voice for the good citizens who live in this country."

In response, Likud MK Ofir Akunis said that "the public is still in trauma following Kadima's three years of failure. After the shameful failure in the political, financial, and security fields, the public fired the Kadima government and appointed Netanyahu and Likud to lead the country responsibly, and to listen to the needs of the public and work to ensure its safety."
