Next Israeli gov't cannot bring peace -Palestinians
RAMALLAH, West Bank Feb 10 (Reuters) - Israel's next government, whether it is led by centrist Tzipi Livni or rightist Benjamin Netanyahu, will be unable to forge peace with the Palestinians, a top Palestinian negotiator said on Tuesday.
"Regardless of the coalition formed by any Israeli prime minister, the next Israeli government will be unable to deliver the requirements of peace," Saeb Erekat said after election exit polls showed Livni's Kadima party with a narrow 2-seat lead over Netanyahu's Likud party, but parliament leaning rightward.
"If the new Israeli government continues to expand settlements, place roadblocks and obstruct a two-state solution, we have no option but to consider it a non-partner in peace," Erekat said.
