MK Yuli Edelstein (Likud), has told "Ofira & Berkovic" that he plans to run for his party's stop spot, and what kind of coalition he will form if elected.

"We will hold primaries," he said. "It's as clear as day to me that the moment I am chosen. I will form a coalition without Yair Golan (Meretz), without Ra'am (United Arab List), and without parties that I have no idea what they are doing there."

Edelstein also spoke about former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who currently heads the Likud, and the relationship between them. Netanyahu is reportedly contemplating a plea bargain, under which he would retire from politics.

"I don't see a situation in which we would return to a coalition with Netanyahu," Edelstein said. "He needs to sit with himself, to make a decision that will be good for him, and to ignore the background noise. I would not advise him to do anything. I would tell him, 'Make the decision that you think is correct.'"

When asked how he would respond if Netanyahu decides to remain in the party, Edelstein said, "I will accept the decision and run against him."
