Zionist Union lawmakers are bombarding Isaac Herzog with censure at a faction meeting over the bumbling of coalition talks with Likud.
Herzog’s co-leader, MK Tzipi Livni, is reported to have said: “I expected a lot more from the partnership between us, and I have immense criticism over the manner in which you conducted the negotiations.”
MK Merav Michaeli, meanwhile, accuses Herzog of “wrongfully taking advantage of the trust the faction put in you.”
MK Itzik Shmuli says “there is a sense of betrayal, that you don’t trust us and don’t include us in such a significant process.”
Other lawmakers for the faction, which combines Herzog’s Labor Party with Livni’s Hatnua, chose to boycott the meeting.
