The great news has now arrived: president Shimon Peres has asked Benjamin Netanyahu to form a government.
Tzipi Livni, who must doubtlessly be humiliated, and deservedly so, at not being given the honor of doing so, doesn't want to join. Despite what the article says though, I don't know if she has the backing of her entire party to sit in the opposition. There is the possibility that several Kadima members may want to join. Or maybe they'll oust Livni like France's social party did with Segolene Royale.
