Labor party chair Merav Michaeli calls for unity in the anti-Netanyahu bloc after earlier infighting.

“I call on my friends in Yesh Atid and National Unity to stop publicly bickering and join us in the struggle,” says Michaeli in a statement.

The Labor head says the parties should unite against the “dangerous and anti-democratic” legislative initiatives being pushed for by “Netanyahu and his extremist partners.”

Michaeli issues a public call: “Lapid and Gantz — don’t let your ego rule you. Our democracy is at stake. We can’t let them destroy it. Show leadership and responsibility.”
