Labor party chair Shelly Yacimovich on Wednesday welcomed rumors that Moshe Kahlon is considering starting a new political party, calling the former Likud minister an "excellent" representative.

"First of all, I think that Kahlon is an excellent representative," she told Israel Wave Radio. "I think that Kahlon's exit from the Likud party is significant. I very much want to see him in the political life, and I'm saying this with honesty. I'm not saying this out of any political consideration, or out of concern for my party."

She added: Kahlon's entrance into the political realm would serve exactly the kind of thing I'm fighting for: ending the irrelevant dichotomy between the political Right and Left- there are no more blocs anymore."
