Meretz party leader Nitzan Horowitz and Labour-Gesher party leader Amir Peretz made a joint statement during a press conference on Monday following both parties decided to run jointly in the next elections.
"You made a historic step and I'm proud of our partnership with you," said Horowitz.
"Unity is the best way forward for the center-left bloc and bad news for Netanyahu and his immunity bloc."
"As we grow stronger, we will assure that Blue & White will form a government of change and not align with the racist homophobic right-wing," he said.
