The Likud party distances itself from comments by the party’s MK Nir Barkat that party leader Benjamin Netanyahu would seek to remove Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara if the party returns to power.

Earlier today Barkat told the 103FM radio station that “I think Netanyahu will replace her. I think he will do it because he will want someone whose worldview is a right-wing one.”

The party however issues a statement clarifying that Barkat’s statement “was his own opinion only and is in opposition to the position of Likud and to former prime minister Netanyahu.” The party says it has “no intention of firing the attorney general.”
