October 9, 2012 18:55

The state is in an unhealthy and unstable condition that needs to be ended soon, Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich said in response to an reports that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would announce early elections Tuesday evening.

"The public must remember that Netanyahu is going to elections in order to immediately afterward, pass a brutal and difficult budget that will harm the life of almost every citizen in the country, except for the very wealthy," she stated.

"The public will choose between two approaches: Netanyahu's and mine. These elections will decide between a violent, jungle economy, and a fair economy and just society," the Labor leader added.

Yacimovich asserted that her party was ideologically and organizationally prepared for election.
