Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich attacked the new government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, calling heads of the parties forming the coalition rich "capitalists" who never had to struggle for money and could not relate to the people.

Speaking at the presentation of the new government in the Knesset referred to the new government as a government of "exclusion," of all marginal groups in society.

She stated that all of the coalition members shared a right-wing political ideology.

Yacimovich rejected the notion that Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid and Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett represent "new politics," saying that the coalition agreements showed the same old fighting for portfolios.
