Yacimovich: Livni should run with me, not fragment Center

Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich reacted to reports that Tzipi Livni was set to announce the formation of her own party in the coming days, saying Saturday that the former foreign minister should run on the Labor list rather than further fragmenting the political bloc opposing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
"Livni is a worthy individual in the political arena - she needs to make her move with me and not divide the Center bloc," Yacimovich stated, speaking at a cultural event in Tel Aviv on Saturday.
"The Labor Party under my leadership is the largest and the leading party in the bloc and anyone that wants to unseat Netanyahu cannot form parties that, on their own, will remain small and compete for votes from the same group of voters," Yacimovich said.
