Yisrael Beytenu head Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday said his party has come under unprecedented pressure in recent days to join a right-wing coalition.
“We have been offered every possible role in the coalition and in the Knesset — all this, only if we agree to a narrow government, contrary to our promise to voters. Needless to say, we rejected all of these suggestions outright,” Liberman wrote in a Facebook post.
Liberman also attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, saying any failure to form a government was due to their “egos.”
“If a government is not formed in the next 24 hours, it is solely because the leaders of the two major parties, Likud and Blue and White, were unwilling to set aside their egos and could not reach an agreement on who will serve first as prime minister and when there will be a rotation,” he said.
