Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich urged Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid on Wednesday not to join Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's government that will, according to her, "shatter the middle class."

"If [Lapid] joins an alternative coalition - I will assist him. If not, we will lead a fighting opposition that has never been seen before," she said.

Yacimovich also expressed disappointment with the 15 seats her party won in the election and said she will work to form a "peace chasing" coalition without Netanyahu.
