In a national media conference on November 28, 2005, the founders of Kadima presented the party's official agenda:
- The Israeli nation has a national and
historic right to the whole of Israel.
However, in order to maintain a Jewish majority, part
of the Land of Israel must be given up to maintain a
Jewish and democratic state.
- Israel shall remain a Jewish state
and homeland. Jewish majority in Israel will be preserved
by territorial concessions to Palestinians.
- Jerusalem and large settlement blocks in the West
Bank will be kept under Israeli control.
- The Israeli national agenda to end
conflict and achieve two states for two nations
will be the road
map. It will be carried out in stages: dismantling terror organizations, collecting firearms, implementing security
reforms in the Palestinian
Authority, and preventing incitement. At the end
of the process, a demilitarized Palestinian state devoid
of terror will be established.
- Israel's political system will be modified
to ensure stability: Legislative proposals will be made
to increase the MKs' commitment to enable the public's
bypassing central committees and vote contractors, and
bring an end to the tyranny of the Likud Central Committee. One possibility would be holding
primary, regional and personal elections to the Knesset and the Prime Minister's office. Kadima would not rule out a future coalition partnership with
any Israeli political party or person.
- Kadima wants to see a "presidential"
system, in which voters choose the prime minister and
legislators on an individual basis and not as part of
a party list, with Knesset members elected according
to specific regions of the country.
