MK Isaac Herzog (Labor) said that he supports the comments made by Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich who declared that she will not sit in a Netanyahu-led government. Herzog said that "the election campaign has officially begun today. The recent incidents have caused deep anxiety amongst a large portion of the public."
Herzog added: "The decision is right and justified and there are good chances that we will create the government. If not, we will continue serving the public from the opposition." (Moran Azulay)
