Liberman: Likud, Blue and White must put egos aside, form unity government

October 28, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , ,

Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman on Saturday called again for the Likud party, headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, and Blue and White, led by Benny Gantz, to form a broad unity government, urging them to “stop the games” and to “put their egos aside.”

Speaking in a Channel 12 interview Saturday, Liberman said a Likud-Blue and White unity government was the “only good option” going forward, days after Gantz was officially tasked with forming a government following Netanyahu’s failure to do so himself.

Liberman said the other three “terrible” options were a minority government led by Gantz, a minority government led by Netanyahu, and a third round of elections.

Israel’s September elections – the second in six months – delivered a political deadlock. Netanyahu emerged with 32 seats for Likud to lead a bloc of 55 MKs from right-wing and ultra-Orthodox parties (Shas: 9; United Torah Judaism: 7 and Yamina: 7). He was initially tasked with forming a coalition based on the strength of this bloc.
