Labor party chairman candidate Amram Mitzna pledged that under his leadership, the party would not sit in a right-wing coalition like the current one with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, the former Labor leader said in a statement on Wednesday.

"The Labor party needs to return to an influential position," Amram said. "An influential position could be in a coalition or in the opposition."

He clarified, "We will not be in a coalition like that of the current government with Netanyahu and Lieberman, which is leading us nowhere."
