Meretz: Good that there's a strong, reliable Left

Following Amir Peretz's move from Labor to the Tzipi Livni Party on Friday, Meretz Chairwoman Zahava Gal-On said it is good there is a "strong and reliable" Leftist bloc in Israeli politics.
Gal-On said the Israeli public must be watching political events unfold with disgust at the extent of the ego, opportunism, zig-zagging and jumping from party to party involved in the run up to the elections.
"I'm glad that Meretz can be a safe haven of integrity in our commitment to ideology over opportunism," Gal-On stated.
