Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich expressed great pleasure on Friday of her party's elected Knesset list.

"We have an incredible list," Yacimovich said in a speech to Labor supporters following the announcement of the primary results. "In my best dreams, I could not have come up with a better list," she added.

"This list represents all factions of Israeli society," she boasted. Candidates on the list represent "an impressive history of leadership and achievements together with young people who know how to fight. They have come together to serve the country," she said.

In her speech, Yacimovich slammed Netanyahu's leadership and cited two failures to his credit - the unilateral Palestinian move to UN recognition and the poverty report that was published on Thursday.
