MK Avigdor Liberman, who chairs the Yisrael Beytenu party and whose refusal to sit with the right-religious bloc led Israel to a second round of elections in 2019, has said that he does not rule out joining a coalition headed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"It's true that I don't believe a word Netanyahu says, but there's no personal disagreement or personal disqualification," Liberman said.

"I have said innumerable times that the State of Israel right now needs a Zionist and liberal government, including the Likud movement, and without the haredi and messianic parties."

By "messianic," Liberman refers to the haredi parties, as well as Religious Zionism and Otzma Yehudit.

Liberman noted that, "If Netanyahu is willing to separate from his 'natural' partners, I will work with all my might to form a Zionist and liberal government with a clear agenda: forming a constitution and separating matters of religion and state."
