Liberman on Lapid giving up rotation deal: ‘An important and noble step’

Yisrael Beytenu party leader Avigdor Liberman praises Blue and White MK Yair Lapid for forgoing his agreement with Benny Gantz to rotate as prime minister if the centrist party leads the next government.

“This is an important and noble step,” Liberman is quoted saying by Hebrew media.

Liberman, whose party holds the balance of power in the Knesset, has pushed for a unity government consisting of Yisrael Beytenu, Likud and Blue and White.
