Yechimovich Against Trajtenberg Package

Labor party leader Shelly Yechimovich came out, Monday morning, against the cabinet's endorsement of the Trajtenberg Committee report on socioeconomic change.

Interviewed by Channel 10 television, she said, "This report is the financial arrangements bill. It's an attempt to bring privatizations in through the back door. The government had two-and-a-half years to ratify an economic policy and doesn't need the Trajtenberg report for this. It's a game with the same bowl of resources without expanding the budget.
