Herzog slams Netanyahu ‘unity spins’

Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog says, “The well-known spins and games by Netanyahu [and Likud members Ze’ev] Elkin and [Gilad] Erdan will not help them. The entire Zionist Union faction is united and backs up my position that we are headed to opposing a narrow right-wing government.”

Associates of Herzog add that “it is embarrassing and quite bizarre that the man [Netanyahu] who called Livni and Herzog anti-Zionists throughout the campaign is now trying to use the scenario of a unity government as a lever to squeeze his partners in the deep right.”

The apparent reference is to ostensible statements made by Netanyahu to his potential coalition partners suggesting that he would not need to accede to their demands if he formed a unity government.
