The main focus of the party was absolute transparency in Israel's government so the people have a clear and concise understanding of the current events as well as future plans. The party believed that without proper communication between Congress members and their constituents, the country loses its stability and the citizens of Israel lose power and security.
Kadima's foreign affairs platform involved seeking MPPs with members of EDEN, such as Sweden, Poland, Croatia, and Norway. Kadima was also looking to build relationships with ALA members such as Colombia. On the defense issue, Kadima would support a defense system for the Tel Aviv Center District.
Kadima supported higher import taxes on foreign manufactured goods, but low import taxes on all raw materials (excluding grain). Kadima supported government owned industries to provide weapons to the IDF and jobs for new citizens with low skills.
