Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Israel's ruling Kadima Party is holding an internal election today to choose a new leader. The party's previous leader, Ehud Olmert, announced his resignation over allegations of corruption and bribery. The two leading candidates are Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, a relative moderate, and Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, a hard-liner and former general.
