Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismisses claims he wants to advance an economic plan — opposed by Blue and White — that will give cash handouts to most citizens as a pre-election bribe to the electorate. He calls that argument a “joke” in his interview with Army Radio.
“I believe that in the end, common sense… will prevail,” he says of the economic plan.
Netanyahu says he hopes to bring the plan to a cabinet vote “in a positive atmosphere, with agreements” with Blue and White.
“I can’t believe there will be anyone who opposes it. It’s not logical,” he says.
