In a last minute decision, Tzipi Livni announced that she will not serve as Prime Minister should the Zionist Camp win tomorrow’s Israeli elections.
Livni’s Hatnuah had formed an alliance with Isaac Herzog’s Labor Party at the outset of the election campaign. They had agreed that if the Zionist Camp came to power, Herzog would serve as Prime Minister for two years and then hand off power to Livni.
Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid believe that Netanyahu and Herzog are going to form a national unity government.
Anything is possible, but given the animosity between Bibi and Bougie I think it is highly unlikely. The more plausible explanation is that Livni was a drag on the Zionist Camp ticket.
I know Israel broke the glass ceiling with Golda Meir more than 45 years ago. Nevertheless, Livni could be the Hillary Clinton of Israeli politics.
The offer renews after one year at the regular price of $79.99.
