Labor lawmakers are not participating in a vote to disperse the Knesset after no agreements are reached to pass a bill to enable the creation of a Tel Aviv-centered metro system.

“The dissolution of this Knesset was born in sin and continued with the sin of not passing the Metro Law because of personal and petty politics,” Labor party leader Merav Michaeli says on Twitter.

“The Labor faction will continue to work for the good of the State of Israel and for the formation of an even better government,” she adds.
