Yacimovich: Offer to Livni to join Labor still stands

December 5, 2012 11:45

Labor Leader Shelly Yacimovich stated Tuesday that her offer to Tzipi Livni to join her party still stands, as Labor postponed it's convention scheduled to be held Wednesday in a reported attempt to give efforts to combine with Livni's party a chance.

"Twenty-four hours are left to submit candidate lists. As far as I'm concerned, until the last minute Livni can respond to my offer and join us," Yacimovich told Channel 10 on Wednesday, referring to Thursday's 10 p.m. deadline.

Army Radio reported on Wednesday that Labor's decision to postpone its convention to Thursday, was made in order to give more time to ongoing discussions about the possible formation of a Left-Center bloc.

Yacimovich told Channel 10 Tuesday that a "rotation" by which she and Livni would alternately hold the top spot in Labor was not an option, because Labor is a democratically elected party.
