Zionist union leader Isaac Herzog announced Tuesday that he would not participate in a debate of party leaders that did not include the leader of Likud, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Channel 2 called upon party leaders to participate in a debate on its evening news broadcast Tuesday night, asking them to respond by the end of the show.

Initially Herzog said yes, as did every party leader, except Netanyahu and United Torah Judaism Chairman Yaakov Litzman.

When it became clear that Netanyahu would not participate, Herzog responded that he would not join a debate that did not include the prime minister.
