The head of the opposition’s Yisrael Beytenu party, Avigdor Liberman, says negotiations over the judicial overhaul are a mistake and harmful to the economy because they stoke uncertainty.
“This is a serious mistake. Every delay is also a hit to the economy. The most important factor for economic stability is certainty, and a delay of a half year or some unacceptable amount of time is a hit to certainty and the economy,” Liberman says at a weekly faction meeting.
The Yesh Atid and National Unity parties have been negotiating with the coalition at talks hosted by President Isaac Herzog. The talks have not made any significant progress.
“I call on all opposition parties to acknowledge that there is nothing to talk about,” Liberman says.
