Yachimovich: If We Win 25 Seats, I'll Form Next Gov't


Labor chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich said Saturday morning that she believes if her party will win 25 seats in the next Knesset the President will assign her the task of forming the next government.

"Netanyahu is weaker than ever and according to in-depth surveys we have conducted, after you peel away Lieberman, Likud will now receive up to 21 seats. If the Labor Party will get 25 seats the President will ask me to form the next government. I know it's hard, I know that the chance is not high, but it is certainly possible," said Yachimovich.
