Yechimovich: Bennett, Lapid Dictate Difficult Struggle

Chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich of the Labor party made it clear to a conference of the party's central committee, Thursday, that she didn't enter the government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu because she didn't want to be "a contractor carrying out the plans" of the prime minister.

Yechimovich admitted that the decision to stay in opposition was not easy. Referring to the main economic ministers, she added, "Netanyahu's two twins, Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, obligate us to a difficult struggle."
