Former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said, Sunday that she was proud to have fellow former opposition leader Amram Mitzna at her side for January's Knesset election. Speaking at a joint news-conference with the two-term mayor of Haifa, she cited Mitzna's record as a fighter in the military and on the social front, focusing on the work he did in the southern city of Yerucham.
Mitzna said, "We're going to elections to replace a government that is failing and, following the election of the Likud's [candidate] list, I would say a list that is dangerous." He added, "I'm mad at myself because I too, like others, was almost resigned to this reality. I sat at home and said 'there's nothing to do. [Binyamin] Netanyahu will be prime minister again.' That's why I'm happy that Livni decided to present an alternative."
