Meretz head Zehava Gal-On on Tuesday attacked Hatnua head Tzipi Livni for becoming the first member of a Netanyahu-led coalition, saying the move was a "slap in the face of Center-Left voters."

"Livni's entrance into the Netanyahu government is a slap in the face of Center-Left voters, who gave their voices to Livni thinking that she would advance the peace process, and who today discover that their voices were stolen and handed off to the Right," Gal-On said. "Livni took the voice of Left in 2009 and did not form the government, and in 2013 ruined the possibility of forming a Center-Left government."

Turning to the prospect of peace negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, Gal-On said Livni had abandoned the option by joining Netanyahu. "Talk of peace negotiations were empty election slogans... Livni is joining a Netanyahu government that might start a peace process, but won't make peace."
