Gabbay appoints opposition leadership title to Shelly Yachimovich

Labor Party leader Avi Gabbay appointed MK Shelly Yachimovich as opposition leader on Tuesday after publicly dismissing Tzipi Livni, who held that post, on live television.
Writing on Twitter, Yachimovich said that dismissing Livni was "brave and an act of leadership."
She also said Livni "refused to accept the leadership" of Gabbay and weakened the party.
