J.Post July 22: Kadima Wants Felon as Party Head

Sir, - Regarding your article "Despite perjury conviction, Kadima activists urge Hanegbi to run for party chair" (July 19), one is compelled to ask whether the activists truly grasp the meaning of perjury or at all appreciate its seriousness.

Deliberately lying while under oath should be sufficient reason to disqualify a candidate from any public office, and even more so as the head of a major political party.

The above should be self-evident, unless those activists in the murky politics of Kadima feel MK Tzahi Hanegbi's skills at disingenuousness are vital to the party's advancement.
