Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich referred to the election results on her Facebook status and said, "The final outcome is 15 mandates and while this is a lot more than anyone dreamed of a year and a half ago, it is disappointing."
Yachimovich added, "I congratulate Yair Lapid but call upon him not to enter Netanyahu's government. If he participates in an alternative coalition, I will assist him. If not, together we will lead an excellent party, a fighting opposition like none other." (Moran Azulay)
