Yechimovich Still Hopes to Block Netanyahu

Labor leader Shelly Yechimovich, who will likely head Israel’s opposition in the new government, said on Tuesday evening that she still believes that a leftist “obstructive bloc” would be formed to prevent Binyamin Netanyahu from heading the next government.

“We may well be at the beginning of an evening that launches a great opportunity to form an alternative government to the Netanyahu government,” said Yechimovich in a speech at the Labor party’s election headquarters.
