Former MK Calls on Liberman to Back Rivlin


Former MK Michael Kleiner, the head of the Likud party’s internal court, on Thursday called on Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman to follow in the footsteps of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and support MK Reuven “Ruby” Rivlin’s candidacy for president.

Kleiner spoke to Arutz Sheva a day after Netanyahu declared support for Rivlin, a surprising move considering the two are known rivals and Netanyahu had been taking desperate measures to prevent Rivlin from being elected.
