Liberman: No New Elections Right Now


Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman has been very critical of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's handling of Operation Protective Edge, and there are some in the political establishment who think he is planning on bolting the government in protest over Netanyahu's failure to decimate Hamas.

But Liberman put those rumors to rest Sunday. In an interview on CNN, Liberman said that he was not planning on causing new elections by dropping out of the coalition. “I am in a minority in this government,” he said. “But I continue to support it. Now is not the right time for elections.”
