Livni: Labor Once Again Joins the 'Peace Camp'


In the wake of MK Yitzchak Herzog's victory in the primaries to run the Labor Party, Justice Minister and Hatnu'a head Tzippy Livni called for a “new partnership” that would include Labor as an active party in pushing for Israeli concessions in the context of a negotiated settlement with the Palestinian Authority.

When she was chosen to head Labor, Shelly Yechimovich made a point of stressing that she would be concentrating on economic and social justice issues, which she said was a more immediate need for Israelis.
