Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman declares that his party will not remove its amendments blocking the Knesset dispersal legislation from passing as long as the Metro Law is not passed.

“From the outset, the Yisrael Beiteinu party demanded that the Metro Law be part of the agreements within the framework of the dissolution of the Knesset,” Liberman tweets. “We agreed to far-reaching compromises in order to ensure the passage of the law. Unfortunately the other parties were not willing to compromise on anything, even at the cost of giving up the Metro Law.”

Liberman urges the rest of the coalition to fall in line and not advance the Knesset dispersal bill so long as the Metro Law is left by the wayside.
