Yachimovich Bids to Head Opposition

Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich began conducting a round of meetings with Arab Knesset members to persuade them to support her as the head of the opposition. Yachimovich is also preparing for the possibility that Yair Lapid and his party will decided to sit in the opposition.
