Opposition chairman Benjamin Netanyahu has left his Likud party’s Tel Aviv headquarters after finishing a meeting with fellow opposition party heads.
Held as the Knesset was preparing to start its summer session today, the meeting closed with an agreement among party heads to continue the “determined and unified fight” to topple the teetering government.
“The government lost its majority in the Knesset. It has no public legitimacy and it’s not legitimate,” a Likud spokesman says.
Upon leaving the party headquarters, the former prime minister declines to answer a question from The Times of Israel regarding what he would do if snap elections were to lead to another political stalemate, as several recent polls indicated.
Netanyahu is accompanied out of the meeting by his wife, Sara.
