Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich on Tuesday said the early departure of Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer was a sign of no confidence in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

"Although Fischer and I often disagreed, we worked together on the Finance Committee on legislating the Bank of Israel Law, and I can attest that he was a brave Governor, undeterred from unconventional steps," she said.

"His resignation, given that there is no fundamental ideological division between him and Netanyahu, sends an alarming message to the citizens of Israel, that the governor is signaling that he is not ready to be part of the economic chaos and social hell that will prevail after the new government forms."
