Likud ready to wait for Herzog after Labor race

After failing to bring the entire Zionist Union into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government and not succeeding in splitting the faction and taking part of it, Likud officials have a new goal: Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog by himself.

Talks between Netanyahu and Herzog broke down after Herzog did not succeed in persuading enough of his party’s MKs to join the coalition. The prime minister made a deal with Yisrael Beytenu instead, but he never stopped his effort to lure Herzog into the government.
