Zionist Union co-leader Tzipi Livni is prepared to forgo the rotation agreement with fellow co-leader Isaac Herzog if it will help in negotiations to form a coalition after Tuesday's election, Channel 2 reported on Monday.

According to the deal, which saw Livni bring her Hatnua faction into the Labor party to form the Zionist Union, she and Herzog would split the term, with each serving two years as prime minister should the party form the next coalition.

Channel 2 reported on Monday, however, that Livni said that the rotation agreement will not constitute a stumbling block for coalition negotiations, and in doing so, gave up her potential stint as prime minister during the second half of the party's term, if Herzog succeeds in winning enough mandates to put together the next government.
