    "... who have voted for Kadima in the past two elections."



    "Netanyahu and Lieberman are gambling that their new Likud Beiteinu party will be an electorally dominant rightwing giant by combining the strength of their two parties while also picking up former Likud voters who have voted for Kadima in the past two elections."

    Which tense do you think "they have voted" is? There is no tense in the underlined words "in the past two elections" as there is no verb.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
