Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog underlined Thursday that by no means would not join the new government formed the day before by Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu, adding that he would seek to again serve as leader of the opposition.

Speaking to Israel's Channel 2 News, Herzog blasted the new coalition saying its narrow 61-seat majority did not comprise a true leadership.

"61 is not a government," he asserted, calling for the government to be dissolved in order to create a new one.

"It is a bad government, it is dangerous," he charged of the new right-wing government due to be inducted by next Wednesday.
