An opposition-implemented plenum on the failure of the peace talks with the Palestinians was heldin the Knesset on Monday.

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog called on Hatnua and Yesh Atid to leave the government amid floundering negotiations and form a center-left coalition with his Labor Party.

"The failure echoes in all areas. This is a government of failure that doesn't provide peace, only depression."

Herzog's comments came after Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said at The Jerusalem Post's Annual Conference in New York on Sunday that he would rather hold early elections than go back to the "grand deal" to extend peace talks which would have seen Israel release 26 terrorists, plus 400 other Palestinian prisoners of Israel's choosing.

"Liberman said the truth," Herzog stated at the Knesset plenum on Monday. "There is no choice other than an election."
