Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich said during her faction's first Knesset meeting, "The rumors suggesting that if I receive one portfolio or another, the Labor will join the government, are baseless."
Yachimovich added that "Labor will not be Netanyahu's gofer. There are people here who will not deviate from the decision not to join the government, made on election eve and afterwards. Any political process will receive our support from the opposition." (Moran Azulay)
