In order to have significant power Kulanu needs a minimum of 15 Knesset seats, says party leader Moshe Kahlon in a Q&A with Haaretz online readers.

Asked whether he believes 15 seats is a realistic goal, Kahlon, whose party is polling at eight, says he believes so.

Kahlon says he wants to be finance minister in order to effect the social and economic change he believes in. Asked whether he sees himself as prime minister one day he avoids the direct question: “For now, we will deal with the Finance Ministry; there is no need for the prime minister’s job. All we need is for the prime minister not to interfere.”
