Following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's press conference regarding the impending dissolution of the Knesset Head of Meretz Zehava Gal-On summed up his address as follows: "I failed, elect me again."
"It is a shame that Livni [Justice Minister Tzipi Livni] and Lapid [Finance Minister Yair Lapid] waited for Netanyahu to fire them. They should have quit a long time ago so as not to be collaborators with this government," Gal-on said.
Gal-On compared Netanyahu's address to his government's term saying there was, "a disconnect between the lofty words and the miserable reality."
Faction leaders will meet with Knesset Speaker Yulie Edelstein tomorrow to decide on the election date, with March 10, 17, 24 the likely options.
Livni, earlier on Tuesday, let loose at Netanyahu saying the impending elections will be over replacing a government she accused of "extremism, provocativeness and paranoia" without knowing how to fight terror while also "upholding freedom and Zionism."
