Yechimovich, Gal-On to PM: We're Not Joining Government

Labor party leader Shelly Yechimovich told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Thursday evening, that her party would not join the coalition. Responding to his invitation to talks, she said she would meet with him but "not lend a hand to the crash of Israeli society for seats in the government."

As expected, Netanyahu was told, earlier, by Meretz party leader Zahava Gal-On that she would not join a government he led.
