Netanyahu meets opposition leader Yechimovich

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Shelly Yechimovich met Tuesday in accordance with an amendment to the Knesset Law mandating the prime minister to update the leader of the opposition at least once a month.

Netanyahu avoided meeting with former opposition leader Tzipi Livni during her tenure in the position, prompting her to accuse the prime minister of breaking the law.



Yechimovich, who became opposition leader last month when Kadima joined Netanyahu's government, has not complained that Netanyahu is avoiding her as Livni did.

The amendment to the Knesset law mandating the monthly meeting between the prime minister and opposition leader was passed in July 2000.
