The politician with the overinflated ego has only served to annoy her own fellow leftists
with a divisive meeting:
Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich and Yesh Atid chief Yair Lapid launched a blistering attack on Hatnua leader Tzipi Livni on Monday for presenting a "false version" of a tripartite meeting they held late Sunday.
The attack highlights friction between Israel's main opposition parties who are attempting to present a united front against a prospective Netanyahu-led coalition.
The three politicians had met to discuss the potential formation of a Center-Left bloc to challenge Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the upcoming elections.
In a joint press release on Monday evening, however, Yacimovich and Lapid said, "we agreed to attend the meeting because of a mutual respect for one another, despite our vast ideological divides. We were shocked to discover we were nothing but fodder for a calculated spin, which had not an ounce of truth or content."
They continued: "It is now clear that invitations for joint meetings were nothing but political exercises by Livni, borne out of her free fall in polling.... This is the same Tzipi Livni that prevented the establishment of a centrist bloc prior to the submission of party lists."
As far as I know, her party's been declining in the polls even now. If she doesn't get into the Knesset in the end, that'll be just as well. What do they expect from someone as self-concerned as Livni is?
