Zionist Union MKs said to boycott meeting called by Herzog

About a third of the Zionist Union’s Knesset members have reportedly decided to boycott a faction meeting called for later today in Tel Aviv by Isaac Herzog, who has come under fierce criticism from his peers over negotiations to join the coalition.

According to a Channel 2 report, during the meeting Herzog is prepared to attack members of the party whom he has accused of sabotaging the move to join the government.

When the negotiations fell through late last week, he lashed out at “far-left” elements in his own party.

The MKs – among whom Channel 2 lists Shelly Yachimovich, Yossi Yona, Stav Shaffir, Omer Bar-Lev and Mickey Rosenthal – are reportedly planning to offer individual reasons for failing to attend the meeting, including some who are expected to cite a crisis of trust with Herzog and others who said they had prior engagements.
