Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich said Thursday that the party had decided unanimously not to join a government coalition led by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu under any circumstances.

"There are only two options, either the Labor Party will lead the government or labor will lead the opposition against the government," Yacimovich said at a press conference.

Yacimovich stated that Likud had undergone a process of radicalization in recent weeks and that the party no longer resembles the traditional Likud.

"I felt respect over the years for this party. But this is no longer the Likud that we know. It's [Likud candidate Moshe] Feiglin from one side and [Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor] Liberman on the other side. They have undergone radicalization in every area," Yacimovich stated.
