Liberman: Netanyahu would even appoint Ayman Odeh as FM to stay in power

Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman hits out at Netanyahu, telling attendees of Channel 12’s Influencers Conference that the prime minister will do whatever it takes to stay in power, including appoint an Arab lawmaker to a senior cabinet position.

“Netanyahu will do anything to stay in power, even if he has to appoint Ayman Odeh as foreign minister, he would have no problem,” Liberman says.

He goes on to criticize Blue and White leader Benny Gantz for his willingness to make concessions to the ultra-Orthodox parties, and says he will likely end up the defense minister in Netanyahu’s government.
