Liberman says he’ll sit in opposition if need be

Also playing hard to get, Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman tells Channel 12 news that he will go to the opposition if need be, insisting that the secular party “will not trade its values for seats.”

Liberman is the only right-wing party head to refuse to say if he will recommend Netanyahu to lead the next government. He pans the prime minister for what he says was an attempt to “weaken the right,” with an 11th-hour campaign meant to slurp votes from potential allies.

He also says he’s not unhappy that Naftali Bennett will likely not enter the Knesset.
