Yisrael Beyteinu Chairman MK Avigdor Liberman today opened the faction meeting attacking Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz.

"The Prime Minister and Alternate Prime Minister are only concerned with who will speak to the cameras. They aren't at all concerned with what's really important to the citizens of the State of Israel - who are fighting to return to their jobs,” he said.

In response to Arutz Sheva's question, does he intend to enter the government in the face of the difficult situation, Liberman said, "There's a coalition of 70 people who instead of working, fight over seats. I don't worry about polls but about people's problems. Real people's troubles and not polls."

He said, "After the elections, we published minimum conditions for entering the government. Netanyahu rejected them and didn't even negotiate. If they accept the basic conditions, everything's open. We will not sell our principles for seats,” he stressed.

When asked by Arutz Sheva whether we are headed to elections, Liberman replied, "It depends on just one man and his name is Binyamin Netanyahu. Gantz has no motivation for early elections, nor do I identify any camp in the Likud that's pushing for elections. If Netanyahu wants, he'll drag us into elections, and if not, not."

Regarding the issue of sovereignty, Liberman said, "Netanyahu's been talking about this for 14-and-a-half months, I don't understand what for. Either you talk or you do. Here, there's only talk. When Begin wanted, he acted. Maybe he'll do something just for show. I suggest you talk to the Yesha Council head who is far more decisive."
