Livni, Yechimovich and Lapid Conclude Meeting

The heads of the three center-left parties - Hatnua chairwoman Tzipi Livni, Labor chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich and Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid - concluded late on Sunday night a three-way meeting, in which they discussed the formation of a possible obstructive bloc to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

At the end of the meeting, the three released a joint statement which said that "the meeting was held in a good atmosphere. We discussed the dangers that are inherent in a radical government. We agreed that we would speak again whenever it will be needed."
