Liberman says Yisrael Beytenu will vote against Netanyahu immunity request

Yisrael Beytenu chief Avigdor Liberman says his party will oppose a request from Prime Minister Netanyahu for parliamentary immunity from corruption charges.

“Now it is clear beyond doubt. The only thing that has interested and interests Netanyahu is immunity,” Liberman writes in a Facebook post shortly after the prime minister’s announcement.

“The State of Israel has become hostage to Netanyahu’s personal problem. He doesn’t care about left or right, religious or secular. The only thing that concerns him is a coalition for immunity. The rest is old wives’ tales,” the Yisrael Beytenu leader continues.

“We, Yisrael Beytenu, will not be part of the immunity coalition. We will all, unanimously, vote against immunity for Netanyahu.”
