Liberman slams government over Moody’s downgrade: ‘Result of populist and insufferable steps’

Opposition Yisrael Beytenu party leader Avigdor Liberman slams the government over Moody’s decision to downgrade Israel’s credit rating and lower its future outlook.

Liberman, who served as finance minister before the current coalition was sworn in late 2022, says the Moody’s decision is no surprise, asserting it’s “the result of populist and insufferable steps the government has advanced since its establishment.”

“The government of destruction is continuing to bring us to an economic disaster, exactly as it brought us a security disaster on October 7,” he charges.

The Yisrael Beytenu chief also hits out at the amended wartime budget being advanced through the Knesset, arguing it “harms growth.”
