Netanyahu says doesn’t plan to fire AG after elections

Netanyahu says he doesn’t intend to fire Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit after the upcoming elections.

“I don’t deal with him at all,” he tells Channel 13 news.

He says his trial on graft charges won’t affect his ability to function as prime minister and asserts that he’s prevented from trying to halt the trial.

Netanyahu also says he won’t agree to a rotation deal with Yamina chief Naftali Bennett that will see the two switch off as prime minister.
