Yacimovich: Significant political gain for Labor

New Labor MK Shelly Yahimovic said Sunday morning that while she would have preferred to see Labor chairman Amir Peretz as prime minister and finance minister, she was satisfied with the coalition agreement reached Saturday between Labor and Kadima, which stipulates that Labor will receive seven portfolios and Peretz will be appointed defense minister. "In light of the political reality, in which Labor is the second-largest party, this is a significant political achievement," Yahimovic told Army Radio.
