Tzipi Livni, the former head of Kadima, said the centrist political party would not be in existence by the next Knesset elections.

Livni, who stepped down as head of Kadima and of the opposition after losing in March’s party primary, was asked if Kadima would be part of the next government, which is set to be elected in November 2013.

“There will be no Kadima by the next election,” she said Tuesday, according to Army Radio, at an Interdisciplinary Center conference in Herzliya. Livni did not elaborate on the comment, according to reports.

Kadima, which is headed by Shaul Mofaz, last month joined the government coalition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Livni said when she resigned from the Israeli parliament that she was not going to absent herself from public life.
