Amid speculation that his party was prepared to forgo passing the Metro Law in order to quickly disperse the Knesset, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid tweets that he is working with Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman to pass the legislation.

“Better late than never,” tweets Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli in response to Lapid’s post.
