Meretz MK Zehava Gal-On on Monday slammed the government's decision to pass sweeping austerity measures, saying that the move was "fixed" and "cruel."

"Economic discussions held today by the government were fixed and their results were predetermined," she said. "Government ministers, many of whom purportedly support the social justice agenda, have betrayed themselves as the lackeys of [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu and [Finance Minister Yuval] Steinitz."
