Livni hits back at Labor, Yesh Atid for 'mudslinging'
LAST UPDATED: 01/07/2013 20:44
Hatnua party head Tzipi Livni issued a statement denouncing "the unfortunate and unnecessary reaction" by the Labor and Yesh Atid parties, which earlier accused her of having lied about efforts to present a joint bloc against a Netanyahu-led government.
According to Livni, this "proves that [Labor head Shlly Yacimovich and Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid] coordinated their positions before the meeting, during the meeting and after the meeting, in order to prevent the truth from surfacing - that they are self-serving and thus refuse to form a cohesive unit that can provide hope to the public."
"Their self-interest," Livni continued "precludes them from continuing discussions, but instead leads them to engage in spins and mudslinging.
"It is time the public learns the truth about their personal motives."
