Speaking at a Likud faction meeting Monday afternoon, Communications Minister Moshe Kachlon said he had had enough of the Knesset, but would still remain a loyal member of the Likud. “I have been in the Knesset for a decade, and in the government for four years. Each night I went to sleep with the citizens of Israel, and I woke up with them. I did all I could to work for all of them,” he said, adding that he had done everything he felt he was capable of doing in public life, and that it was time to try something new.
With that, Kachlon said, he would remain a loyal and active member of the Likud, adding that without the guidance of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the nation's economy would be in much worse shape.
