Israel's Labour unveils election pact with centrist Livni

Former justice minister and HaTnuah party leader Tzipi Livni speaks during a joint press conference in Tel Aviv on December 10, 2014Opposition Labour party leader Isaac Hertzog and centrist former justice minister Tzipi Livni on Wednesday announced an alliance to contest Israel’s snap general election in March. “When we receive the mandate… I shall serve as prime minister for the first two years and Tzipi Livni will serve as prime minister for the second half” of the four-year term, Hertzog said at a televised news conference. “Today the Zionist centre has risen against the parties of the extreme right,” said Livni, formerly Israel’s chief peace negotiator with the Palestinians, who was fired from government last week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who accused her of working against his right-leaning coalition from within. She began her political career in Likud before following the late Ariel Sharon when he founded the Kadima party, then setting up her own HaTnuah before the last election.
