Zionist Union chief Isaac Herzog took to Twitter late Wednesday to pan the new, narrow right-wing coalition that is set to take power in Jerusalem.

“This government is devoid of responsibility, stability, and an ability to govern,” tweeted Herzog, who has been conspicuously silent in recent weeks, fueling speculation that he had not ruled out joining Netanyahu in a unity government.

“This government is one of national failure,” Herzog tweeted. “A government that is susceptible to extortion is a narrow, weak government that won’t advance a thing and will be quickly replaced by an alternative that represents hope and responsibility.”
