If Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had the courage to form a centrist coalition Labor would likely join it, Eitan Cabel, number three on the party list, said Friday morning. However, he expressed deep skepticism that Netanyahu would make such a move.
"If the prime minister would have the courage - and he doesn't - so it's no more than wishful thinking... if he would call us, Kadima, Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid and would say 'you are my coalition,' that would be difficult for us to refuse," Cabel said in an interview with Army Radio.
Cabel also addressed Labor's failure to win the number of seats it had expected in this week's election, affirming that the party would have to "examine itself."
