Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich. Apparently Netanyahu wants to see if there is still a chance that Labor will join the coalition. Yachimovich's associates clarified that she is determined not to join the next government.
In his speech during the 19th Knesset's inaugural session, Netanyahu stressed that "at trying times conflicts must be left aside in favor of unity." (Moran Azulay)
