Livni Gives Up Rotating Prime Ministership With Herzog


isaac-herzog1The Zionist Union’s number 2 candidate, Tzipi Livni, will gives up rotating with leader Isaac Herzog in the role of prime minister, the party announced, Times of Israel reported.

Livni joined her Hatnua party with Isaac Herzog’s Labor to form the Zionist Union ahead of tomorrow’s election in return for a rotation deal that would have seen her – in the event of a victory – take on the premiership two years into the term.

On Sunday, Haaretz reported that during a Zionist Union campaign meeting, Livni said she was willing to forgo the rotation, but strategist Reuven Adler opined that, so close to the election, the change could bring more harm than good.
