Hatnua sources claim that Chairwoman Tzipi Livni's most preferable option is inclusion in the government. "It won't be at any price, but it can be said that she has exhausted the oppositional adventure. A government with Livni will be more legitimate, last longer and quieter."
The party also analyzed the reasons for the disappointing mandate numbers. "The trend is Lapid. We assume that he benefited from the refusal of the leftist bloc to unify and we were attacked by all parties. Either way, it is seemingly preferable for Lapid to join the government with Livni."
