Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon has decided to skip his own farewell ceremony Sunday, in disgust with his ouster and in the context of him "taking a break" from politics. 

The farewell-and-swearing-in-ceremony will still commence Sunday in the Kirya government complex in Tel Aviv, in the presence of top generals and government officials.

Meanwhile, coalition talks continue between delegations from Likud and Yisrael Beytenu, which would expand the government from 61 to 66 MKs. 

Political analysts believe the coalition agreement will be signed no later than Monday, and that Liberman will take the position of Defense Minister Tuesday. 

Ya'alon announced last week that he intends to return and contend for leadership of the Likud party.
