Former justice minister Haim Ramon apologizes for calling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “political pig.”
In an interview with Radio 103FM on Tuesday, Ramon — who represented Blue and White in coalition negotiations with Likud — blamed Netanyahu for the collapse of the government.
“You want to know why we are going to elections? Benjamin Netanyahu, a political pig,” he said.
On Wednesday, he tells Galey Yisrael radio: “I didn’t mean that Netanyahu was a political pig and I apologize to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for it.”
