MK Peretz Claims Ethics Violation by Yachimovich

MK Amir Peretz on Tuesday evening approached the temporary chairman of the Knesset, Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, and the Attorney General of the Knesset Ethics Committee, and requested an urgent meeting of the committee to discuss the "ethics violations by MK Shelly Yacimovich." 

Peretz said that Yachimovich, who had earlier in the day accused Peretz of buying votes in the Labor party's primaries, "violated her commitment to maintain the dignity of other Knesset members."
