Labor chairwoman MK Merav Michaeli is urging the anti-Netanyahu bloc to unite and form a government.

In an interview with 103 FM Radio, Michaeli said: "We have 61 Knesset seats which want to replace [Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu. We need to form a government with them."

"It's not really that complicated," she said, referring to the fact that the anti-Netanyahu bloc is made up of right-wing politicians, center-left politicians, and the Joint Arab List which has anti-Zionist elements and traditionally refuses to sit in any Israeli government.

"We can definitely join together with a consensus that is not perfect for anyone but which is based on economic and social principles. Nothing will be anyone's dream.

"I call on [New Hope Chairman] Gideon Sa'ar: Don't be [Zvi] Hauser and [Yoaz] Hendel. Come form a government."

Hauser and Hendel were part of the Blue and White party, but broke off last year to form their own "Derech Eretz" party. They later joined Sa'ar's New Hope party.
