Yechimovich Wants Netanyahu to Accept her Status as Center-Left Leader and Debate Her

Labor Chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich has invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a public, televised debate. On her Facebook page, Yechimovich wrote that "the time has come for a public debate on all the important issues upon which the citizens of Israel must decide."

"I invite you to a televised debate, as is accepted in the Western world, and as was common in the past in Israel," wrote Yechimovich. "The public is entitled to it, and we should be committed to it, to discuss poignant, real topics, of our two world views on issues facing the voters. The only true choice (for voters), is between you and I, between Likud Beiteinu and Labor."
