Livni Calls on Yacimovich, Lapid To Form United Front Against Netanyahu

Hatnuah chairwoman Tzipi Livni on Friday called on Israel’s centrist parties to come together and form a united front against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud-Beiteinu.

During an appearance on Israel’s Channel 2, the former foreign minister issued a public call to Labor chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich and Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid for an urgent meeting to discuss uniting Israel’s centrist bloc.

“We can win this battle, we cannot give up,” Livni said. “I call on Shelly and Yair, let’s unite, let’s decide how to win this battle now. We now have more (projected) Knesset seats than Likud-Beiteinu.”

Livni said that such a meeting, with the two other leaders of center-left parties, must take place as soon Saturday.
