Meretz: Left Will Not be Fig Leaf in Stagnant Gov't

Meretz Chairwoman MK Zahava Gal-On announced Saturday night that she has no intention of entering into a coalition government with PM Binyamin Netanyahu. 

"The left is not going to be a fig leaf  of another stagnant nationalist government. The statement of the Prime Minister is indicative of distress which befell the coalition negotiations," Gal-On said. 

"I remind everyone that immediately after the previous elections Netanyahu formed a unity government with Labor. Unity governments are governments of congestion and stagnation," she added.
