Likud MK Miri Regev says a leaked recording of her saying the opposition should vote against legislation that benefits disadvantaged populations in order to topple the government does not warrant an apology, adding that her remarks were “taken out of context.”

“I have nothing to apologize for. Whoever recorded should apologize,” she tells reporters.

She calls the recordings “a severe case of intentional leakage of half-truths.”

“At the faction meeting, I said a very clear thing: we have one role — to overthrow this dangerous coalition that is unable to pass even one law without the opposition,” she adds.
