Meretz: Elections show public crying out for alternative

January 23, 2013 19:30

“These elections have proven that the public is crying out for the left and for an alternative,” Meretz Chairwoman Zehava Gal-On said in her speech to Meretz supporters at the party’s headquarters in Tel Aviv after exit polls were released on Tuesday night.

The party doubled its mandates for the 19th Knesset, jumping from its current three seats to either six or seven.

After the results were published, Gal-On called on leaders of centrist parties to rally with Meretz and form a strong opposition bloc to counter Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
