Netanyahu: I want to lead Israel ‘for many more years,’ immunity a temporary issue

Prime Minister Netanyahu says he intends to lead Israel “for many more years” and hits out at his political rivals as he begins a speech addressing whether he’ll request immunity from criminal charges.

Netanyahu says legislation concerning immunity is meant to prevent “manufacturing of cases” against public officials, which he claims is happening to him.

He also stresses that parliamentary immunity would only apply as long as he is a lawmaker and that it would not indefinitely shield him from criminal charges.
